Our 10th birthday

The Eden Project celebrated its 10th birthday in 2011.

Since opening to the public in March 2001:

  • nearly 13 million people have visited our site in Cornwall
  • as an educational charity we've worked with people around the world on numerous transformational projects
  • we've earned the local economy over £1 billion.
