A world garden located in Cornwall. Eden Project has around 1 million plants of 4,000 species and cultivars. A real Eden of colours, smells, surprises, but also learning and fun. The experience this attraction offers is truly unique, you will feel immerse in other latitudes and remember how wonderful nature can be. I went in winter and I share with you some of the beautiful flowers I found there.
There are two Biomes. One with plants from the Rainforest and the second with the Mediterranean area
The weather in the Rainforest Biome feels like you were in the tropic, there is only one thing missing: mosquitos! And you don’t miss them at all.
You could fit the Tower of London in the Rainforest Biome. You can go to the top and have an amazing view of all the place.
The architect, Nicholas Grimshaw, of the Biomes got the idea of doing the biomes like bubbles when he was washing up.
There is a Rainforest Canopy Walkway where you can walk among the treetops and watch the waterfalls.
This real Eden was built in a china clay quarry and it is an amazing example of what humans can do with a little of inventiveness and determination.
What it is more impressive about the Mediterranean Biome is the smells. Perfume herbs and flowers are everywhere.
Among the foliage of the Rainforest you can see photos of tribal people taken by the photographers Robin Hanbury-Tenison and, a personal favourite, Sebastião Salgado
Eden Project is not static. Exhibitions, concerts, events, events, ice rink, skywire are some of the things they do through the year.
Voted the best UK leisure attractions in the British Travel awards 2014. I can say it is a complete experience not only for entertainment, for knowledge too.
