Cornwall’s biggest visitor attraction recently opened its doors to dogs – proof, if any were needed, that the county is wholeheartedly welcoming Rover and his friends to as many of its attractions as possible. Although dogs won’t be able to frolic in the famous biomes and indoor spaces, there is plenty of space to wander around the outdoor garden displays, enjoying Eden’s cutting-edge architecture and world-class sculptures and art.
You should be aware that, being such a busy place, there are a few ground rules to follow: you will need to keep your hounds on leads, and with you, at all times during your visit (you can’t just tether them to a tree and head off to enjoy the indoor gardens); and as mentioned there are a number of places that are out-of-bounds to dogs.
However, there is an undercover dining area outside the Eden bakery where dogs are permitted; and if you do decide to leave your dog in your vehicle, or take them back to your vehicle during your visit, there are four shaded car parks that provide shelter for dogs, one of which has a water tap. Very thoughtful.
