Accessibility guide

The Eden Project aims to provide a great experience for all ages, abilities and backgrounds.

We work hard to make our site as accessible as possible for everyone and we are proud to have won multiple awards for our accessibility and inclusivity.

In addition to the information on this page, AccessAble offers a range of in-depth access guides to the Eden Project on its website.

Booking is not necessary for the manual chairs. These are available in the Apple car parks and Visitor Centre. All wheelchairs are routinely cleaned by stewarding staff before after use.

A self-propelled wheelchair is available to book in advance. Having access to the wheels means you can change the direction you are facing without relying on another person.
