Had a great time here. The gardens are wonderful. Loved the ferns and the Italian garden. Could get a bit expensive for families but plenty of places to enjoy your picnic.

What a place! So much to do and see, lots for children young and old. Lots of walking but still accessible for limited walkers. Staff very friendly and helpful. Would recommend to anyone looking for a great day out

Although there are no specific two for one offers or discount codes, if you’re visiting the Eden Project too, there’s the option of buying discounted joint tickets from their website. We hope to see you soon.
