Guided tours

The Eden Project's Biomes are brought to life by our team of Explainers and Tale Makers every day, and we offer a variety of guided tours and self-led trails to help you uncover the incredible stories of our plants and gardens. 


Explainer and Tale Maker presenting a talk in the Rainforest Biome

Free daily walkabout tours

Most days, our knowledgeable team of Explainers and Tale Makers offer engaging introductory guided tours of our Rainforest and Mediterranean Biomes. 

These talks last about 40 minutes, and take you on a short walk through the first section of our Biomes introducing you to the stories of some of our extraordinary plants. These tours are wheelchair accessible and an excellent way to kickstart your journey through our gardens. At the end of the tour, our Explainers will leave you to explore the rest of the Biome at your own pace. 

When you arrive, just check our 'What's on' information boards to find out when these tours are happening and where to meet. 

These tours take place on most days at various times, but cannot be pre-booked.

These relaxing tea tasting sessions and talks are free and happen most days in the Bamboo House, which is located near the exit of the Rainforest Biome. When you arrive, just check our 'What's on' information boards to find out when these talks are happening.
