The Eden Project (Cornish: Edenva) is a visitor attraction in Cornwall, England. Inside the two biomes are plants that are collected from many diverse climates and environments. The project is located in a reclaimed Kaolinite pit, located 2 km (1.2 mi) from the town of St Blazey and 5 km (3 mi) from the larger town of St Austell, Cornwall. The complex is dominated by two huge enclosures consisting of adjoining domes that house thousands of plant species, and each enclosure emulates a natural biome. The biomes consist of hundreds of hexagonal and pentagonal, inflated, plastic cells supported by steel frames. The largest of the two biomes simulates a Rainforest environment and the second, a Mediterranean environment. The attraction also has an outside botanical garden which is home to many plants and wildlife native to Cornwall and the UK in general; it also has many plants that provide an important and interesting backstory, for example, those with a prehistoric heritage.Wikipedia

Eden Project, Cornwall Reviews - Write a Review
The first time I visited the Eden Project 7, maybe 8 years ago with family, it was absolutely amazing. I’d raved about it since then. So this year on a romantic holiday to Cornwall, I took my other half. This is not the Eden Project I remember. It’s cramped and tacky. I still have no idea why they have an ice rink there... There used to be a lovely outdoor space with interesting sculptures as you went from one dome to the other, now it’s all enclosed with a garish eating area and over priced ice cream. Save yourself the horrendously overpriced tickets (£25 pp if bought online). The Eden Project is a product of it’s own success and a bad one at that.
Fantastic place to visit, so interesting and plenty to see and little play areas dotted around. Land train (tractor train) always a hit with young ones. Arrived when they had space theme, excellent fun for little ones. I understand they change the themes. Restaurant had delicious food, Mediterranean restaurant was best. Spent lots of time there, bit dear but value for money if can do multiple trips as ticket is effectively an annual pass at the moment
The Eden Project should be on every botanists bucket list! It is well designed and filled with the most diverse, beautiful plants you can find in the World. You must go there, it is a wonderful place for you and the family. Now, the down-side is the price of things and getting into the Eden project – this a view from a working-class man. However, it is value for money if you enjoy the beauty of plants. The Eden Project is like going into a different World. A truly magical place.
I came here previously in the year it opened to the public and the outside area (former quarry) has developed out of all recognition, with excellent plantings. I enjoyed the Mediterranean biome more as I could cope with the heat. There is plenty of information on all of the plants and trees and they are grouped by the part of the world they come from. I reckon that 3 hours here would be plenty for most people and that the only real drawback is the £25 price tag.
Wow! You easily need a full day to see everything! Beautiful gardens and sculptures. And something to learn at every turn! Well worth the drive and price
