Our View

An unforgettable experience in a breathtaking location, the Eden Project is a gateway into the fascinating world of plants and human society. Space-age technology meets "The Lost World" in the biggest greenhouse ever built. Located in a 50 metre-deep crater, the size of 30 football pitches, are two gigantic geodesic conservatories: the Rainforest Biome and the Mediterranean Biome. There is also a Rainforest canopy walkway - giving views across the treetops from high above the forest floor. Plus SkyWire, the longest and fastest zipwire in England (additional charge and weight restrictions apply). There's an indoor ice-rink from October to February, and the Eden Sessions concerts in the summer - see the website for details.

About the area

Discover Cornwall & Isles of Scilly

Cornwall has just about everything – wild moorland landscapes, glorious river valley scenery, picturesque villages and miles of breathtaking coastline. With more than 80 surfing spots, there are plenty of sporting enthusiasts who also make their way here to enjoy wave-surfing, kite surfing and blokarting.

In recent years, new or restored visitor attractions have attracted even more visitors to the region; the Eden Project is famous for its giant geodesic domes housing exotic plants from different parts of the globe, while nearby the Lost Gardens of Heligan has impressive kitchen gardens and a wildlife hide.
