The Eden Project is one of the best attractions to visit in Cornwall. It’s an important sustainability enterprise that boasts large biomes in an old quarry in South Cornwall. The biomes showcase plants from different environments and, when it’s raining outside, you’ll be dry enjoying the different environments they have created such as the Mediterranean and Rainforest.
The Eden Project shares with its visitors the diverse climates and how important a role they play on our planet. They want to educate visitors on how actions in the UK affect climates around the world and the Eden Project does a fabulous job at explaining it so well.
Why is it a great place to visit? It’s a perfect attraction to visit with kids as there is so much to see and do (we know how hard it can be to keep young minds captivated!) and is perfect for a family day out, but couples will also love it. Our favourite area of the Eden Project was the rainforest canopy walkway where you are transported to jungle-like conditions, all we needed was Tarzan!
As well as the biomes, there’s a selection of Cornish plants and an indoor exhibition too. You’ll be inside most of the time, although you will need to walk from the car park and between the biomes so make sure you pack your waterproof or umbrella too.
