Eden Project

Eden Project 

Overview:

The Eden Project, an educational charity, connects us with each other and the living world, exploring how we can work towards a better future. The visitor destination in Cornwall, UK, is nestled in a huge crater. Here, massive Biomes housing the largest rainforest in captivity, stunning plants, exhibitions and stories serve as a backdrop to our striking contemporary gardens, summer concerts and exciting year-round family event.

Review: 

One of the Hard Days Out reviewers will be visiting the Eden Project soon, but in the mean time here are some details from the Eden Project team.

The Eden Project has lots of events for all and they also run specific disability sessions. They work closely with the Sensory Trust making venues accessible and sensory rich. We are so pleased places like the Eden Project are embracing and supporting individuals and families with disabilities.

Over the summer they have “Earth Story” which is focused upon the giving people the opportunity to discover the evolution of life as we know it. There are giant beasts, incredible stories, mind-blowing virtual reality, hands-on activities and interactive exhibits will take you on a journey through Earth’s astonishing past, precarious present day – and a future that’s ours to make. What we think is fantastic is the fact during the summer there are several “relaxed sessions”. 

The relaxed sessions are designed to welcome visitors who may benefit from a more informal experience, such as those with autism and sensory or communication needs. They take place on the following Wednesdays before Eden opens to the public in the morning, 8.30-9.30am:

  • 31 July
  • 7 August
  • 14 August
  • 21 August
  • 28 August

There is no additional cost to attend a relaxed session, but please book your place in advance. 

We cannot wait to send a member of our team to the Eden Project, as there are so many inclusive elements to the venue that are a must see.
