- Latest news: overnight road works on main access road to Eden from A30**
Just outside St Austell on the south coast of mid Cornwall, Eden is well signposted from 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 exit at the Innis Downs junction (A391), then take the signs for Eden.
*Note for sat nav users
Please note that some sat navs direct 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.
**Overnight road works on main access road to Eden from A30
Every night between 6pm and 11pm from 8 to 24 June, the road between the Innis Downs roundabout on the A30 to the Stenalees roundabout will be closed. The official diversion route will take you from Innis Downs to Victoria, in through Roche village and out to Stenalees. This will be fully signed with a couple of Eden Project specific signs placed along the diversion route to ensure traffic trying to access Eden follows the correct route. Please allow more time for your journey to Eden during this period.
Parking at the Eden Project
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.
Car share your journey to Eden
If you fancy some company, want to save money on fuel or reduce your carbon footprint, you might find someone to share your journey through the national Liftshare network.
Electric vehicle charging point
We have two electric vehicle charging points in our Banana car park, a standard and a fast charger, which are free of charge to use and operate on a first come, first served basis.
