Mission

The Eden Project, an educational charity, connects us with each other and the living world, exploring how we can work towards a better future. We create memorable experiences that lead people to care about each other and the natural world and do transformational projects to show what people working together and with nature can achieve. Our first project was to build a global garden in a crater that was once a china clay pit as a symbol of regeneration and the art of the possible. Today we work on a wide range of environmental and social projects nationally and internationally to further our mission. The money we raise supports educational programmes and projects which catalyse change.

 

Immerse yourself in over 700 species of plants and animals, without leaving the UK at the Living Rainforest near Newbury in Berkshire. You’ll see birds, lizards, butterflies, weird and wonderful plants in our lush tropical glasshouses and see if you can spot our resident Sloth!

Why you'll love visiting us

The Living Rainforest is home to hundreds of species of tropical plants and animals, including Goeldi’s monkeys, red-billed toucans and a two-toed sloth. They have a fantastic plant collections with exotic flowers and super-sized leaves.
 

After exploring the rainforest houses and Human Impact Building, kids can let off steam in their outdoor play area while adults relax over a cappuccino.
 

The Living Rainforest is an all-weather attraction, open daily and year-round, with special events organised during weekends and school holidays.
