Eden to remain closed over Christmas period
Next review on reopening will take place on Boxing Day, December 26.
The Eden Project is to remain closed to visitors over the Christmas period for safety reasons following last weekend’s flooding and landslips.
Managers at Eden made the decision this afternoon (Tuesday December 22) after a further assessment of the site and say the next review as to when it can reopen will be made on the afternoon of Boxing Day, Saturday December 26.
A spokesman for the project said that Eden was very sorry to disappoint visitors who had planned to attend since Sunday and over the coming days but that the safety of all visitors and staff remained top priority. Ticketholders for the days Eden is closed will be automatically refunded.
The site was closed early on Sunday as a safety precaution after high volumes of rainwater caused several landslips on the side of the former quarry and damaged the road above it.
Work has continued to control the flow of water, survey the full extent of the damage and to plan a safe reopening.
Visitors are asked to check on the website www.edenproject.com and on Eden’s social media channels for further updates as to when the project will be able to reopen.
