More about this Workshop/Service and the Provider

Hangloose activities at the Eden Project will take your students to their limits and beyond. They’ll learn to take risks and identify areas for personal development back in the classroom.

To make preparing the school trip easier, we’ve designed a full day, and a half day package.

Suitable for young people over the age of 8, both are guaranteed to give your students the time of their lives as well as complement classroom learning.

From world-class adventure experiences, to puzzle-solving and team building exercises, everything you could need is here onsite, including undercover space to eat your packed lunch.

Hangloose activities are the perfect opportunity for students to build on their ability to understand and act upon instructions. They will learn how to set and achieve their own goals, as well as show support for their peers.

A combination of trust, balance, strength and problem-solving. Students will work in pairs to discover whether they have a head for heights, as they climb their way to the top of our 30ft wall.

Climbing and Abseiling available with experienced instructors helping to challenge and reward.

Hangloose Adventure offers so much to do. From the world famous Skywire, to giant swings and big airbags! There is something for everyone no matter your level of experience.


Residential school trips

YHA Eden Project is the most convenient place to stay for your school trip to Eden and also provides a great base for your exploration of the wider Cornwall area.

Staying in our Youth Hostel is a unique experience for your students - it is made from shipping containers, in keeping with our ethos of sustainable living. It has 174 beds in 58 modern en-suite bedrooms, and we welcome school groups of all sizes. Our comfortable rooms are equipped with all the conveniences you expect from YHA and more.

Residential education packages 

For maximum flexibility you can design your own stay. Combine YHA’s amazing accommodation with your choice from Eden’s School Workshops and Challenges, and add an Eden Evening session to complete the adventure. It’s suitable for any age of students with our fabulous full-board option available for groups of 20 or more.

Here’s what we offer:

1. School Workshops

Inspirational, curriculum-based two-hour workshops designed for students from Foundation stage right up to A Level. They take in our fantastic site and are delivered by our expert team.

2. Eden Challenges

Especially designed for YHA groups, these three-hour Eden Challenges allow a little more time for deeper learning, practical activity and team-focussed challenges, ranging from fire skills to den building. 

3. Eden Evenings

These unique events give groups the fantastic opportunity to get on site once the Project is closed to the public – including inside the Rainforest Biome at night. 

4. Adventurous Activities

Skate on our glitteringly beautiful ice rink (October to February) or climb, leap or fly with our high-adrenaline activity partners Hangloose


Most of our Workshops cost £6.20 per pupil, with a minimum charge of £124 per group (includes VAT). Challenges and Evenings cost £8.40 per pupil, with a minimum charge of £168 per group (includes VAT). The maximum group size for all our sessions is 35.


The children were just awe struck by their first sight of the Biomes and their experiences inside, over the week, mean they'll carry with them a wealth of knowledge they'll use throughout the year and beyond.
Teacher from Meadowfield School

The children had a wonderful time, the staff and workshops were fantastic, the food was fabulous; the organisation excellent.

“This place is incredible!! The facilities are outstanding, the activities (we did Skywire, Gravity and Big Drop) are immense but most of all the staff make the whole experience an exceptional one."
