  2. Hannah says:

    That's a shame - we've tried to advertise the offer as widely as possible. You may have accidentally landed on a page dated from last year from the moneysavingexpert.com We will be offering this next year too.

  3. Hannah says:

    Just to let you know that there's one more day of our locals offer on 3 March - see http://www.edenproject.com/buy-tickets/local-pass

  5. Hannah says:

    Louise, we're shortly to announce the details - so we'll drop you a line when it's ready to buy!

  6. Craig says:

    Hi, I've been waiting for the residents 2 yearly pass for £10 promotion that was run in 2012 to be run for 2013/14 but have not come across it. Is it going to be run again please?

    Kind Regards,


  7. Hannah says:

    Craig, we do have this year's offer running - you can find information here, including on how to 'top up' last year's pass.

  8. Dave says:

    Hi I visited Eden Project on Sunday and bought a locals annual pass. The checkout assistant told me I could activate the pass at home as the terminals at Eden were very busy. I cant find out how to do this on your site. Please let me know how.

  9. Dave says:

    Thanks for the link Hannah. When I go to the link and input the number on the back of my card it then displays on the site:
    "Local Adult 1 This ticket is registered to"
    There is no name displayed - how do I know it's registered OK?

  10. Hannah says:

    Dave, the best people to speak to about this - who are really familiar with the system - are on our Reception. It would best to give them a call on 01726 811911 and they can talk you through it.

  11. Melanie Grigg says:

    During your allocated time for locals to get the pass we've had a lot of unforeseen and not very nice life circumstances occur meaning we've had more pressing things to deal with. And now we've discovered we've missed out on the local's pass! Is there any chance of you extending the offer or due to extreme circumstances allow us to get one now? It seems a shame that locals miss out on getting this cheaper rate ticket, where in actual fact if they were more encouraged to get them, they'd visit a lot more, and therefore spend more money whilst there!

  12. Hannah says:

    We're sorry to hear about recent events, Melanie, and hope things have settled down for you. Unfortunately we're not able to extend the offer - but we do tend to start this offer each year in about November, so keep an eye on our website/Facebook/Twitter/e-newsletters.

  13. janice says:

    Hello, please could tell me when you are going to re allocate the local annual passes.

  14. Hannah says:

    Hi Janice, this will return in November 2014. Keep an eye on our Facebook and website for the exact date...
