Dog and owner at Eden Project

Visiting with your dog

You can bring your dog to Eden to explore the paths in our Outdoor Gardens. We provide water bowls and an undercover dining area for dogs.

Please note that assistance dogs are welcome throughout the whole Eden site. 

Rules for dogs visiting Eden

Dogs can enjoy miles of outdoor paths at Eden, but are not allowed in children’s play areas, the Biomes or other undercover areas, apart from the Visitor Centre (including the ticketing hall and shop) and the Core. Please note, dogs are not allowed in the Core Gallery exhibition space on the top floor of the Core.

Please bear in mind that most visitors want to explore our indoor Biomes, so if you have a dog with you this might restrict your visit. Some groups of people who visit with their dog take it in turns to look after their pet while the others explore the Biomes.

We are confident dogs will behave but there are a few ground rules for owners.

Dogs must be: 

  • kept on a lead at all times
  • with their handlers at all times, so never left unattended
  • only be walked on paths
  • kept away from play areas
  • not taken into buildings other than the Visitor Centre, the Core and the Stage.

Owners should stick to the number one rule of ensuring all dog mess is promptly and properly disposed of in the special bins provided.

Aggressive dogs are not permitted into the Eden Project. We reserve the right to refuse entry to, or remove, any dog thought to be dangerous to visitors or other dogs.

Dogs are not permitted at the Eden Sessions music and comedy concerts.

Because some of our paths are narrow we prefer that you only have one dog per person, but will allow a maximum of two.

Dog strollers are permitted into the Eden Project but, as with dogs on leads, must not taken into buildings other than the Visitor Centre.

Please note that assistance dogs are welcome throughout the whole Eden site.
