Dubbed the ‘Eighth Wonder of the World’ by some, the Eden Project is a dramatic global garden housed in tropical biomes that nestle in a crater the size of 30 football pitches.
With a worldwide reputation, the Eden Project barely needs an introduction, but this epic destination definitely deserves a day of your undivided attention.
More than just a huge, tropical garden, Eden is a gateway into the relationships between plants and people, and a fascinating insight into the story of mankind’s dependence on plant life.
Not only a mind-blowing visitor attraction, Eden is also fast-becoming a unique resource for education and knowledge towards a sustainable future.
Experience the sights, smells and scale of the rainforests in the Humid Tropics Biome – the world’s largest greenhouse – and discover the tropical plants that are used to produce everyday products.
Travel to South Africa and California, as you amble amongst the orange and lemon trees, olive groves and gnarled vines of the Warm Temperate Biome, and in the 30-acre Roofless Biome see hemp, sunflowers and other plants that could change your future, flourishing under the Cornish sun.
A fascinating location, but, more importantly, the Eden Project is a fun and family friendly day out.
Curious kids can find out where tea, rubber and sugar come from, and travel the world to the simulated environments of tropical destinations that they dream of travelling to in the future.
There are themed events according to the seasons, workshops for adults and children, activity days, music concerts – the well know Eden Sessions that have attracted huge names – and much more besides.
There’s no stress about packing up a family survival kit – facilities include on-site restaurants and cafes, gift shops and well equipped child- and baby-friendly toilet facilities. Head Chef Tony Trenerry and his team pride themselves on using fresh, locally sourced produce and ingredients grown on site.
In fact, for a day out you needn’t worry about taking much more than yourselves!
The Eden Project offers easy access to wheelchairs and buggies. There is a land train available and buses from the car parks to the main entrance.
