Despite reading many negative reviews about the Eden Project having “gone downhill” since it initially opened, our experience was really great. Everywhere felt well maintained, and it still impressed us all (two grown ups and a six year old) at every turn. There was an information card under most plants so you could find out more about them as you wandered around.
There were parts still closed due to the pandemic but this didn’t really detract from the experience. We visited at 9:30 on a Monday morning and found most areas to be fairly quiet, in fact we were often the only ones around, which meant we got some great pics. Yes, it’s expensive, but there’s no other place like it - and your money goes to help preserve rare plants, and educate others about green initiatives so get over it! And if your child has a (free to apply for) Blue Peter badge it’s free entry.
The main restaurant area was busiest but people were well spaced and most wore masks. There are lots of lovely places to eat lunch if you bring a picnic - which will definitely save you £15 a head. Having said that we had coffees and three different pizzas between us and they were really excellent.
Overall it was a wonderful day out and we would highly recommend it.
