Guided tours and guide books
Add a special experience to your group visit with either a 20-minute introductory talk, or a one-hour guided tour, from one of our expert guides who can bring to life the story of the Eden Project.
Our talks and tours are given in small groups of around 15-20 people, so visitors can enjoy a personal touch and there are plenty of opportunities to ask questions.
Introductory talks for groups
From clay pit to world-famous visitor attraction – learn how the story unfolded with new introductory talks exclusively for groups.
The pre-booked 20-minute talk will provide an invaluable insight into the history of Eden and the amazing plants you’ll discover when you continue your journey around the Biomes.
Guided tours for groups
If you would like your group to get even more from their visit, we can arrange a one-hour guided tour with a member of our Guide Team.
Each tour gives an inspirational overview of the Eden Project and the stories that inspired it. There are three different tours on offer.
The Outdoor Garden tour
Covering 13 hectares, 15 years ago this was a barren landscape 15m below the water table with no level ground, no soil and no plants. Today you can discover crops that provide foods, fuels, medicines and materials in the Biome that has the sky for a roof.
The Mediterranean Biome tour
Explore the sights, scents and stories of the Mediterranean, South Africa and California through plants such as citrus, olives, herbs and vines, South African proteas and aloes and Californian annuals, poppies and lupins.
The Rainforest Biome tour
Experience the tallest rainforest in captivity as you stroll through the steamy jungles of Malaysia, West Africa and South America. Plants and crops in the Rainforest Biome include bananas, coffee, mahogany and a range of epiphytic plants.
