Practical information about Locals' Passes
Visiting in 2020 with your Locals' Pass
All visitors to Eden must now pre-book a time slot in advance of each visit, including Locals' Passholders. We simply ask that you book a time slot online.
As an additional thank you to Locals’ Passholders for their patience and continued support during our temporary closure we are working out the practicalities of being able to offer an extension on Locals’ Passes. Please bear with us as we work through these.
If you've lost your Pass, to help us get visitors safely and efficiently into the Eden Project during their allotted time slot, we would advise you to contact our Box Office about this in advance, so that we can help ahead of your visit (firstname.lastname@example.org; 01726 811972 daily 9am-12).

Proof of residence
Locals’ Passes are available exclusively to residents of Cornwall and Devon, and purchasers do require proof of residence. Please bring with you the appropriate forms of identity, chosen from the list below – either when buying your Pass in person or when you first visit after buying your Pass online or on the phone:
Proof of residence with photo ID
Ideally, you should bring one piece of identity that shows residence in either Devon or Cornwall (i.e. postcodes starting with TR, PL, TQ or EX), and has your photo on, such as a driving licence or bus pass showing your current address.
Non-photo proof of residence plus photo ID
If your photo ID does not show your Cornwall or Devon address (i.e. if this residence is not your primary address, or if it is a bus pass or work badge and does not show your address), please also bring in additional proof of your residence in Cornwall or Devon, such as a utility bill.
Three forms of proof of residence
If you have no photo ID at all, please bring three pieces of identity that show residence in either Devon or Cornwall (i.e. postcodes starting with TR, PL, TQ or EX), such as utility bills.
Proof of residence for children
Buying a Locals' Pass for your child as well? Simply bring them along with you, and we'll use your own proof of residence. If you're sending them along with an adult who doesn't live at your house, please get them to bring in your own proof of residence.
Adult Locals’ Pass holders (over 16s) will be photographed upon activation of the Pass, and the image will be securely stored. These images will only be used for identification purposes when arriving on site, and to prevent misuse of the Locals’ Pass.
If you've lost your Pass but it is still valid and you would like to visit us, we will be able to help you at the Visitor Centre admissions desk. Please bring along a form of identity (a photo-card driving license is best). Please arrive a few minutes early when you visit so that we can look you up on our system.
