All new festive experience for 2020

Join us for a beautiful and welcoming experience this Christmas at Eden, full of lights and music.

During the day, enjoy seasonal walks and trails through our Outdoor Gardens, take a whirl on the ice-rink**, and warm up with a hot chocolate or festive treat.

As darkness falls, the Biomes shine out with a festive welcome. Follow a route around the Rainforest Biome, where the tropical landscape is transformed into a magical world of shadows and light. Cross over to the Mediterranean Biome, where thousands of dancing, twinkling lights create a beautiful backdrop to a joyful celebration of Christmas music*, performed live by musicians positioned amongst the gardens and exhibits.

Look out for a very special guest in an all new location for 2020: Father Christmas and the elves have returned to Eden, with a magical show full of warmth and cheer for young and old**.

Enjoying Christmas at Eden safely

We’ve worked hard to create a magical yet safe experience for all our visitors this Christmas. Eden continues to operate at reduced visitor capacity with pre-booked timed entry for all guests. Please ensure you allow at least 30 minutes between your timed entry admission to Eden, and the start of any ticketed session for ice skating or Father Christmas, if applicable.

There are one-way routes throughout the Outdoor Gardens and Biomes, and we ask that you keep moving at all times through the Christmas experience so that all our visitors can enjoy the lights and music safely.

Bear in mind that there may be queues to access the Biomes, so please wrap up warm and plan according to the weather. Find out more about how we’re keeping our visitors safe.
