The Eden Project is Cornwall’s best known tourist attraction. It was the brain child of Tim Smit, who decided to build the world’s largest greenhouse in a disused china clay pit at Bodelva, near St Austell. It consists of three biomes (a biome is a ‘large naturally occurring community of flora and fauna occupying a major habitat’). There is the Outdoor Biome, the Rainforest Biome and the Mediterranean Biome. The Rainforest Biome is 50 metres high, 110 metres wide and 240 metres long. The Biomes contain more than a million plants representing 5,000 species from around the world. Around 250 schoolchildren visit the Eden Project every day.

The award winning £15 million Education Centre was opened by the Queen in 2006. The Eden Project is known as the ‘Eighth Wonder of the World’ and since opening in March 2001 has seen more than 8 million visitors. Eden’s outdoor gardens wind their way to the biomes, providing a beautiful surrounding of flowers.

Eden has the world’s largest rainforest in captivity, including steamy jungles and crashing waterfalls. You can walk around the extremely humid biome and see bananas growing, plants providing cola, and chewing gum, rubber trees and a mini soya plantation. There is a spectacular lookout, which takes you to the height of the rainforest, a view normally only seen by the most intrepid explorers.

The Mediterranean Biome is a wonderfully temperate biome, containing olive trees, lemon trees, herbs and vines. It contains over 1000 types of plant and the temperature ranges from 9 degrees in the winter to 25 degrees in the summer. With native plants from the Mediterranean, South Africa, South West Australia, Central Chile and California, it is a wonderfully sensory experience.

You will need around 4 hours to explore Eden fully. In addition to the biomes there is a wonderful selection of seasonal activities such as ice skating, rock climbing, Halloween events, circus activities and Wild Days Out, plenty to entertain the children.
