Magical moments and unmissable experiences await you this Christmas at the Eden Project. 

Get cosy in Father Christmas’ Eden camp and meet the man himself along with this merry band of elves. As darkness falls, prepare to be amazed by our all-new after-dark experience with awe-inspiring light installations, live music and stunning projections

Plus, our cafés are serving seasonal food and you can do a spot of Christmas shopping at our gift shop, which is open late on selected evenings.

The Eden Project is featured in the UK’s best places for Christmas this winter by Daily Mail, Telegraph and i newspaper, and as shown in The Guardian Gallery
