Directions by public transport:
For routes to Eden walkers can also follow the Clay Trails cycle routes. There are also combined footpath and road routes from Luxulyan, Par and St Austell which all have rail links. See local map OS Explorer 107.
There is a reduced price admission for cyclists and walkers, and you can use our fast track admission desk. Please let our admission staff know if you walked or cycled. (Please note: you will need to buy your tickets on the door, cyclists and walkers can't buy tickets in advance).
The Clay Trails cycle routes come to Eden from Bugle (4 miles) and Wheal Martin (5 miles), and along the way you can see some of Cornwall’s mining heritage and enjoy some spectacular views.
You can access these trails from the National Cycle Network route 3, which runs through Bodmin and St Austell.
The roads from Par, Luxulyan and Bugle (all have rail stations) are rural or B roads and with care you can choose a route using scenic, quiet country lanes. See local map OS Explorer 107.
