The Amazing Eden Project


I've now been to the incredible Eden Project twice, and I can't believe I haven't written about it yet! It's probably one of my favourite places in the world and trust me when I say you NEED to go!


The Eden Project started building in 1998 and was opened to the public in 2001 with two biomes, the Core was later opened in 2005. The Tropical biome houses tropical plants such as bananas, coffee, rubber and has the climate of a rainforest. The Mediterranean biome houses arid plants in a warm temperature such as olives, lemons, eggplants, tomatoes, cacti etc. The huge outdoor gardens showcase plants from all different parts of the world, including local UK species. Lastly, the Core has art installations and is an education facility. There are many art sculptures situated both in the biomes and around the gardens also, including a giant bee, all made from recycled material.

After all that walking around, I was even able to get some delicious vegan katsu curry! 

  

Well, that's the Eden Project! I love this place so so much and what's really great about it is you pay for yearly entry. Last time we were in Cornwall, we were close by and had an hour to kill, so we decided to have a quick nip round again. I love the education this gorgeous place brings to so many people and the importance it has. It really is one of the best places in the UK so what are you waiting for? Get going! Oh, and don't leave without visiting the gift shop, it's not one to be missed ;)
