The Eden Project is an unforgettable experience in a breathtaking location; a global garden; a place of beauty and wonder. Our world famous architecture and art draws inspiration from nature, our educational work is about creating a positive future in a world that is going to go through radical change, and we try to ensure everyone who visits Eden leaves knowing something more about their connection to the world. That’s the big stuff… Eden is also about simple pleasures; enjoying tasty food, rediscovering what puts the great into the great outdoors, imaginative play for children, taking time to stop and smell the flowers, having a good time.
Eden’s Rainforest Biome takes you on a fascinating journey into the humid tropical regions. (Remember to take a bag to put your jackets in – it gets very warm in here and in the upper reachs of the dome it can be very stifeling – but very much work the experience of a true tropical climate – even if it is raining and cold outside)
Eden’s Mediterranean Biome takes you through the Mediterranean-type climates.Not too hot in this dome but do have a good look around – you can easily miss some real treasures.
Over 3/4s of Eden’s planting is outside, which just shows you how much there is to explore. From the flowers you would be familier with through to the exotic plants of mountainous regions of the globe you will find a facinating veriaty of flora and fauna
The Core is the name of Eden’s Education Centre, which has lots to see and do.
