Rainforest Lookout-Eden Project

The Rainforest Lookout is an aerial platform at the top of the 165-foot-high Rainforest Biome – which is taller than the Tower of London.

The climb up to the Lookout gives you a unique bird’s eye view of the biggest greenhouse in the world. From the platform you can see the tops of giant trees such as kapok and balsa which have nearly reached the biome ceiling and may even catch a glimpse of our resident wildlife such as tree frogs and tiny birds known as Sulawesi White Eyes.

Please note: There are 9 flights of stairs to get there. It's very hot (possibly 40°C) and very humid. To be on the safe side we're asking customers to complete a medical questionnaire. Sometimes, if the temperature is too high, we have to close the Lookout to visitors.

Medical advice

Anyone who is affected by the following may be precluded from taking part in this activity. Further medical advice will be available on the day of your visit:

disabling giddiness

high blood pressure


any heart condition other than innocent heart murmur


sedative medication for anxiety or tension difficulty in dealing with very high temperatures.

Lovely photos of the geodesic domes Erik. We visited the Eden Project about 10 years ago in the middle of winter. I wasn't impressed with state of the plants - the botanists seemed to be having difficulty with the control of disease. I think it must have been improved since then.

The domes always remind me of piles of soap bubbles! :))

Groetjes, Amelia
