Local Pass: just £7.50 for a whole year, or £12.50 for two years!
Our Locals' Annual Pass offer is currently closed.
As one of the the biggest visitor attractions in the South West, Eden has loads to offer. As well as our world-famous indoor Biomes – the steamy Rainforest and the relaxing Mediterranean – we've got our beautiful outdoor gardens where horticulture enthusiasts love seeing the dramatic changes throughout the year.
You can also take advantage of the delicious, locally sourced food and drink on offer in our cafes. You can watch tasty treats being prepared in front of you at our innovative Bakery, or enjoy alfresco-style dining in the Mediterranean Biome, or sample seasonal dishes at our various other outlets.
Our packed calendar of kids' and family events during school holidays are free to Locals' Annual Pass holders, including Time of Gifts in the winter, Freaky Nature in the spring, Festival of Play in the summer and Halloweden in the autumn.
A year of fun with this annual pass
This offer, open exclusively to people who have their main residence in Devon or Cornwall, provides an annual pass so that you can enjoy all the seasonal changes to our plants as well as the huge array of events we have throughout the year. Get hold of a Locals' Annual Pass and you'll have the freedom to visit whenever you like. We're offering an annual pass to locals in recognition of all the support we've received from people in Cornwall and Devon since we opened in 2001.
