A BIG BUZZ
youd get an almighty sting from this bee if it was real and not a huge sculpture.......and can you imagine the size of the honeycomb ?
Eden has some great sculptures, look out for the figure of a woman near the Land Train pick up point, its made of earth and grass and is lovely, she did need a `haircut` when we saw her so l didnt take a picture, hopefully in September when we return she`ll have had a trim
You could spend a whole day here exploring Eden, but on average, visitors spend about 4 hours here. We spent about 3 hours in Eden, but that was due to other time restraints. Once you are admitted to the site, you are free to wander everywhere, and there is no restriction to the number of visits to the Biomes, etc.
There are busy times, and at peak holiday times you should either plan to arrive early, before 10 am, or later in the afternoon. There are sometimes very lengthy delays die to traffic jams, as the access roads to the site are really nothing more than country lanes, once you leave the major highways. Opening Times
You should click on the link provided for an up to date overview of Eden, including opening times and entrance fees.

This year (2004) the adult entrance fee was £12. If you are a Student, you can get a 50% reduction, as Julian did, even though he wasn't British! Check out the prices before you go, by clicking on the link.
We thought that the entrance fee was rather steep, but there are deals for families, Senior Citizens and so on.
