Dubbed by many as the eighth wonder of the world, the internationally acclaimed Eden Project is the world’s largest global garden and since its opening in 2001 has continually lured visitors from around the globe. Nestled in a former china clay pit, the biomes house a plethora of plants and trees, including the world’s largest indoor rainforest and rightly deserves the attention it receives year on year. 

On arrival, take in the environmental messaging on the walkway down to the entrance as this sets the tone for the strong educational ethos behind the attraction. Once inside, enjoy free time to explore at leisure.  

Head to ‘The Core’ to learn about some of the planet’s ‘Invisible Worlds’ before meandering through the wild gardens and into the biomes themselves. Take a left to enter the ‘Rainforest Biome’ and discover why the rainforest is such a crucial part of our planet. Learn how to make changes to daily lifestyles in order to be more sustainable and truly make a difference.  

Having thoroughly explored, exit and continue straight along the walkway into the stunning ‘Mediterranean Biome’. With its brightly coloured tumbling arches of Bougainvillea, aromatic herbs and huge aloes there is much to keep all the senses stimulated here. Spot the world’s hottest chilli, wander the golden mosaic path and admire the gnarled olive trees whilst exploring environments from Australia, South Africa, California and of course, the Mediterranean. There is even a restaurant here for those wishing to dine alfresco in the warm scented air. 

Back outside, head to the Myth and Folklore exhibit keeping eyes out for ‘Eve’, a living sculpture made primarily out of clay from the reclaimed pit than Eden lies in. Then either walk along the winding path up to the top or climb aboard the train to enjoy a slow meander back before browsing the fantastic gift shop which is packed full of wonderful plants, local crafts and delicacies. 

It will then be time to re-board the coach and travel back to Fowey.
