Following yesterday’s flooding, the Eden Project is fully open today (Sunday 16 December). The Shadows and Light Christmas experience is taking place around the site and in the Biomes as normal this evening from 5pm. Hot food and drink will be available all day. The ice rink will be fully open. Father Christmas visits are sold-out today and will go ahead. There are Father Christmas sessions available tomorrow and the rest of the week from 10:30 to 19:30 - please book in advance via the Father Christmas webpage.

Using a sat nav to find us

  • Postcode for satnavs: PL24 2SG 

Please note that some sat navs direct traffic along narrow roads to get to Eden. For example, westbound traffic from the A390 is sometimes taken from St Blazey via Cornhill Road to the Eden Project. We do not recommend taking this narrow route. It is better to continue to the A391 and follow the signs to Eden from there. 

Parking at the Eden Project

There is ample free visitor parking at Eden. From the car parks, you can either walk down to the visitor entrance and ticket desks or take a free park and ride bus. Unfortunately, no overnight parking is permitted.

Visitors are welcome to park motorhomes or campervans in the car park, and we can accommodate these in our coach park if they are oversized. 

Car share your journey to Eden

If you fancy some company, want to save money on fuel or reduce your carbon footprint, you might find someone to share your journey through the national Liftshare network.

Electric vehicle charging points

Standard / fast charging points

We have two electric vehicle charging points in our Banana car park; a standard and a fast charger, which are free of charge for our visitors to use and operate on a first come, first served basis.

Superfast charging points

You can also access a rapid 50kW point in Melon car park, which is available for public use during Eden’s opening hours, and which customers pay to use. It is operated through ChargePoint Genie, with whom car owners must register to make use of the charging point. You can see online when this and other local charging points are in use/available.

It’s part of a new network of fast and superfast electric vehicle charging points across Cornwall, Plymouth and West Devon. Find out more on the Cornwall Council website.

For more information about the payment mechanism or to report a charger fault, please call ChargePoint Genie on 020 3598 4087. Phones are operated 24/7.
