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

Upon arrival, take in the environmental messaging on the walkway to the entrance—this sets the tone for the strong educational ethos behind the attraction. Once inside, time to explore at your leisure.

Head to ‘The Core’ to learn about some of the planet’s ‘invisible worlds’ before meandering through 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 change your daily lifestyle to be more sustainable and make a real difference.

After your thorough exploration, exit and continue straight along the walkway into the stunning ‘Mediterranean biome’. With its brightly colored arches of Bougainvillea, aromatic herbs, and huge aloes, there is plenty here to keep the senses stimulated. Spot the world’s hottest chili, wander the golden mosaic path, and admire gnarled olive trees while 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 and keep your eyes peeled for ‘Eve’, a living sculpture made primarily out of clay from the reclaimed pit where Eden is located. Then you can choose to 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, packed full of wonderful plants, local crafts, and delicacies.

Then it’s time to re-board the bus and head back to Fowey.
