The journey planner map below will give you step-by-step directions to Eden. Simply add in an address or postcode to get started.

Directions to Eden Project by car

The Eden Project, just outside St Austell, is well signposted from both the A30 from Exeter and the A391/390 from Plymouth.

If you’re coming from outside Cornwall, take the M5 southbound to Exeter, where the motorway splits. Take the A30 and continue until you reach the Innis Downs junction (A391) from which Eden is well signposted.

Please note that the Google Map on this page directs westbound traffic from the A390 from St Blazey via Cornhill Road to the Eden Project. We do not recommend taking this narrow route. It is better to continue to the A391 and follow the signs to Eden from there.

Roadworks near Eden

Please note that long-term roadworks are taking place at the junction of the A391 and the B3374 at the top of the village of Penwithick, at the start of the main approach road to the Eden Project. It is likely that during peak times these roadworks will cause some delays to your journey here. Please check the BBC website for the latest traffic news.

In addition, the road to the East Gate of the Eden Project will be closed for resurfacing for a week in September. Bodelva Road will be closed between St Blazey Gate and Prideaux Road from 22 to 24 September, and between Prideaux Road and Luxulyan Road from 25 to 27 September.

There is ample parking at Eden. From the car parks, you can either walk down to the visitor entrance and ticket desks or take a free park and ride bus. Unfortunately, no overnight parking is permitted.
