The Eden Project

The Eden Project is an educational visitor attraction overlooking St Austell Bay in Cornwall.

It was constructed at the bottom of 50 metre deep disused clay-pit and contains 5 massive artificial bio-domes or greenhouses containing the largest indoor rainforest in the world.

This attraction contains plants collected from all over the world and gives visitors the opportunity to experience different environments all in one place – mother nature meets modern science and creates great beauty.


Who will love the Eden Project ?

If you love plants you will love the Eden Project. The Bio-domes have created great environments to showcase plants from around the world. However, the entire site has been landscaped and contains a huge variety of plants. Strolling around the gardens is a pleasure in itself.

The Lost Gardens of Heligan

If you you love the Eden Project you need to visit the lost gardens of Heligan. The gardens were discovered hidden under a blanket of bramble, ivy and over grown plants. The garden had been left untended for more than 70 years. When the overgrown garden was cleared and restored, almost two and a half miles of footpaths, gardens and follies were discovered.

Outside there are 30 acres of gardens to explore and a stage with regular entertainments and activities for children such as den building.

The Eden Project has continued to develop and enhance the attraction with additional activities and things to enjoy. Using the natural features of the site they now offer rock climbing and have 10 different routes that can be climbed. When the rock climbing stops during winter months, an ice rink is available. Each day between 12 - 2 pm they have story telling for children in the Mediterranean bio-dome citrus grove.

The eden cafe offers a very atmospheric venue to enjoy various gigs and performances. The Eden Project is a great place to visit that could be combined with other things to do such as the Lost Gardens of Heligan that are close by.

The Lost Gardens of Heligan have there own version of a tropical jungle. Sheltered from extreme temperatures the gardens have a riot of luxuriant foliage, exotic plants and one of the longest Burmese rope bridges in Britain.
