What's planned for Christmas (2–30 December 2022)

In celebration of the festive season, our Mediterranean Biome will be filled with an incredible immersive orchestra experience, featuring modern versions of some of our favourite Christmas tunes. We’ll have 11 live musicians across multiple stages throughout the Biome, weaving their sounds together to produce a harmonious and joyful sensory experience.

In the Rainforest Biome, see our spectacular plants and flowers as you never have before and follow a mystical journey through an enchanted wonderland. Marvel at breath-taking new light displays.

Our Outdoor Gardens will also be beautifully dressed for the festive season from the moment you step onto site. Don’t forget to visit the Plane Tree Steps to see our incredible light display, and don’t miss the return of our Tunnel of Lights on your way into the Link Building.

Father Christmas

The Father Christmas experience (2-24 December 2022)

Meet Father Christmas and his newest helper Elfie this Christmas at Eden.

Elfie is fresh out of Elf Training Camp and ready to get stuck in – but she keeps accidentally causing havoc, instead of helping! Find out how Elfie learns to be brave and ultimately team up with Father Christmas to deliver a Christmas miracle.

Each child will be given the chance to meet Father Christmas and leave with a storybook of Elfie's adventures, plus a chocolate treat, as part of their Father Christmas experience.

Relaxed sessions

We’ll be offering relaxed sessions on 3, 4, 10, 17 and 21 December, to allow those who may benefit from a more informal experience, such as those with autism and sensory or communication needs, to enjoy site at their own pace.

Ice rink

Take a spin on our ice rink

Add an extra bit of sparkle to your Christmas visit; our glittering ice rink is back for the winter, with session suitable for all ages. Eden Project Members benefit from a 10% discount on Adult, Child and Family tickets for general skating sessions.

Please note, as well as an ice skating ticket, skaters also need a valid form of Eden admission, and a pre-booked timed entry slot that is at least 30 minutes earlier than the start of your skating session.
