Eden Project – Day Trips for Schools and Educational Workshops

Plan your trip to the Eden Project’s Biomes and gardens. 

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 have all sorts of things for schools, colleges and universities – including educational trips, teacher training, and free resources.

Eden Project is nestled in a huge crater in Cornwall, UK. 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 events and school visits.

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.
