ST AUSTELL, CORNWALL & ISLES OF SCILLY
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.
