In the peaceful place of Cornwall, a paradise awaits those nature lovers and enthusiasts. A garden filled with so many varieties of flora that you’ll be staggered on the actual count. The Eden Project was opened to the public back in May 2000 and it has since then collected plants from all over the world and placed them in the artificial biodomes. But all of this is not only for show, it has become a great source of knowledge towards a better sustainable future.
Located there is the world largest greenhouse, the Rainforest Biome. All the sights and smell of a rainforest just within your reach. The Tropical Biome gives you a glimpse of all the tropical plants you might have only seen in pictures. The Mediterranean Biome displays arid plants like olives and grape vines, there are also various sculptures present. Then there’s the Outdoor Biome which shows plants that grow on the temperate regions of the world like lavender, sunflower and hemp.
Other important things that they show and demonstrate are the different products that come from the plants. And just with a transfer of a biome, you can literally experience the climate and flora of other countries. It’s quite a family friendly attraction, you don’t really have to pack up on things and supplies because restaurants, cafés, gift shops and well equipped toilet facilities are available.
If ever you still have hesitations on this trip, here are a few things to poke your interest. It has the largest rainforest in captivity in the world, they have evening gigs and concerts, during the winter there’s an ice rink, a rainforest lookout which gives you a view above the treetops, an actual example of regeneration and sustainable living, a free land train pulled by a tractor and many more.
