Spectacular floral displays

Thanks to the mild winter Eden is enjoying its most dazzling spring for years both indoors and out. 

In the Mediterranean Biome alone, more than 24,000 tulips are flowering - twice as many as last year. Almost 100 varieties are on show - watch the video on this page to see a selection.

Outdoors there are many varieties of daffodil and other flowers, shrubs and trees to appreciate as they reach their spring peak.

  • Adult (three courses, including free drink for mums and grans): £19.50
  • Child (two courses): £9.50
