5 Reasons to Visit The Eden Project this February Half-Term

January 30th, 2018

The Eden Project has to be one of our favourite local attractions here at The Valley. With a plethora of exciting activities, events and sights available all year around, this February half term has a fantastic line up of family-friendly activities that all the family will enjoy:

1. Early Man

Are you a fan of Chicken Run and Wallace & Gromit? If so, you’ll love the newest adventure by the same creators, Early Man. The scene is set at the dawn of time and tells an incredible story of Dug and his best friend Hognob as they courageously fight to save their beloved home. Take a step back in time to go on your very own quest for the Schoolkel coin and you’ll learn about historic civilisations before heading into the Cave where you can become a cave-artist! Not only will this be an educational experience of history, but you’ll also have the chance to see some sneak previews of behind the scenes footage from the film itself! The Early Man exhibitions will be available for your adventures between the 13th February and the 18th February, so don’t miss out on this exclusive event! Don’t forget to head to your local cinema to see the full story too!

2. Storyfest

Celebrate the magic of children’s stories at the Eden Project this half term with Storyfest. With performances by the Imagination Seekers drawing inspiration from Roald Dahl’s wild stories, writing workshops by Paper Nations, crafts and workshops a plenty, there’s something to capture all the family’s interests this February! Storyfest is running from the 11th to the 19th February 2018 and admission fees are included in the entry price to the Eden Project.

3. Ice Skating

The Christmas ice skating rink is open until the 18th February for all to enjoy. Whether you and the kids are rookies or professional skaters, you’ll love the magical experience. Penguin aids are available for the little ones who aren’t quite so confident on the ice too! Each session lasts for 40-minutes and prices are £7.00 for an adult, or £6.00 for a child.

4. Food

The Eden Project has plenty of fantastic places to stop off and refuel on-site, from The Coffee House, perfect for a sweet treat and a warming beverage; to the traditional Pasty Snack Bar and exotic Eden Kitchen, there’s something sure to suit every taste. Refuel yourself after walking around the wonders at the Eden Project with some delectable treats before continuing on your wild adventure.

5. The Biomes

The events mentioned above are all special seasonal events, however, the usual suspects of the tropical biomes, incredible rainforest walks, and stunning sculptures are also available to view during your trip. Our family friendly cottages in Cornwall are perfectly located so that you can explore the beauty of Cornwall and the excitement of the Eden Project from your very own luxury home! For the adults, a little Valentine’s treat is available on the special day in the form of a three-course meal in the Rainforest Restaurant with champagne, canapés and entertainment all included in the ticket price.
