The Eden Project is just outside St Austell and is well signposted from the A30 from Exeter and the A391/390 from Plymouth. Follow the M5 southbound to Exeter before taking the A30 and continuing until you reach the Innis Downs junction (A391). From here the Eden Project will be signposted. During Eden trading hours there are a number of entrances to the site which will be available to use, however it is important that you initially report to the 'Service Gate' entrance.
