About the offer

These offers are available to the groups listed below in Cornwall and Devon, who bring with them the correct forms of identification. No need to book; simply turn up.

The offer includes free entry to the Eden Project for the individual and their immediate family for the day (that’s a maximum of one extra adult and three children aged 16 and under).

There is also the option to:

  • skate on our ice rink (extra charge applies)
