"Eden Project - Don't Bother" Saint Austell Things to Do Tip by Loops

Saint Austell Things to Do: 59 reviews and 95 photos

The Eden Project was a big disappointment for our family - far too expensive, small, cramped and too many people allowed in at once.

If you're happy to pay over 15 to shuffle around behind 8,000 other people and having to queue for absolutely everything, then it is the place for you!

I have been to many gardens in Cornwall and my advice is to avoid the overhyped Eden Project and go somewhere like Trelissik, Trebah or the Lost Gardens of Heligan instead - they're cheaper, more peaceful and much more picturesque.
