    Absolutely beautiful. The project is fantastic, allow yourself some time to take it all in. I was lucky enough to be there (by accident) when manic street preachers performed.
  • Danai F.
    Nice try but not worth the 30 pounds per person. It's too expensive. The only somewhat worthy is the rainforest biodome because you go up and you can really feel the heat.
  • Hannah L.
    Plan to spend all day here exploring. Food is a good value. Very educational and relaxing. Each pass is good for a year.
  • Daniel T.
    Fantastic place. Little disappointed about with the coffee shop is closing to early 4pm.

    Took the dog but could only really walk around the outside of the biomes, not worth going if taking a dog

    A bit pricey - i only did the biplane which is fun but the view could be better.

    Amazing for the kids. So much to do and just at the end of the biodome a little bar for the parents to enjoy a cheeky rum cocktail!

    This place is a must for anyone with little children, and all those adults who are kids at heart, the events they put on during the year are super and their Christmas was nothing short of spectacular

    A good day out if there's something on, otherwise it's just a big garden centre.

    So much to do here, you'd struggle to fit it into one day! Biomes are a must and The Core does its best to educate you on life and the world.

    you can use the lift from the core to get back to the visitors centre. This avoids waiting for the land train or walking back up.

    A unique but expensive experience. Imagine Disneyland remixed by Greenpeace. Take the bridge from The Core back to the Visitor Centre if you're tired at the end of the day.

    You can actually leave your coat/jacket in the cloakroom before exploring the rain forest biome which is usually very warm.

    For the most relaxing concert experience grab a picnic blanket and chill out on the grass bank at back of the arena. Alternatively, get down the front and sing-a-long like your life depends on it! Read more

    Commercialized and not that exciting. Felt a bit empty compared to what one has to pay. Only "wow" thing could be the rainforest biome, other than that not much to see..

    The Eden Café, great coffee and cookies. They are very slow. If they organised it better like: one taking the order and payment, one making coffee and one doing the cookies+serving. Still great place.
  • Kerry W.
    Kerry WilliamsJuly 30, 2013
    Great food options, not cheap but not extortionate either. Rainforest biome is great but be prepared to sweat a lot walking round it. Can recommend the Med' biome to cool down and relax in after.

    Don't go there if you want to see English gardens.. And it is ridiculous expensive. Furthermore i always feel cheated if there are thousands of ways to get cheaper tickets if buy the ticket elsewhere

    £23.50 for an adult and its a bit boring after a while. Nice novelty but not a whole day out for me and not worth coming back so "yearly" ticket a waste of time.

    Nice day out on a wetter day as you can stay inside for hours. 2 tips- bring a picnic (no one minds and food isn't cheap) and most important DO NOT come in half term- bit manic
  • Jerry F.
    Jerry ForanMay 19, 2013
    Good day out, particularly if the weather isn't great. The rainforest is by far the best bit but can be very crowded and may even be closed on a hot day!

    Jan/Feb they usually run a promotion to get cheap tickets if you can prove residence in Devon or Cornwall. Well worth it. Kids like going on the bendy bus. Wear layers so you don't get too hot!

    Do the Med biome first. Otherwise, after the Rainforest one, it's a bit of a let down. It's great, just not as impressive as rainforest.

    It's not really a suitable day out for kids who can't yet read, as the only interactive exhibits are in The Core Building - the rest is really just a traipse around the biomes reading the notices.
