Falmouth Packet: Worst ever year as Eden Project loses £6.3million Worst ever year as Eden Project loses £6.3million

The Olympics, bad weather and the struggling econopmy have been blamed for the Eden Project's worst ever loss.

The trust had a deficit of £6.3m for the year 2012/13, ending March 2013, with a trading loss of £1.3. The year before it had a surplus of £136,000 with a trading profit of £3.6million.

The Cornwall eco-attraction said its underlying trading loss was about £1.3m compared with a profit of £3.6m in the previous year.

Workers at the attraction lost their jobs last year, with over 50 posts going as visitor numbers dropped to 953,000.

Land at Eden has also been sold.

They would get more visitors if the entrance prices were more reasonable. Lower prices x greater numbers = higher profit!
