EDEN PROJECT

The Eden Project (CornishEdenva) is a visitor attraction in Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. Inside the artificial biomes are plants that are collected from all around the world. The project is located in a reclaimed Kaolinite pit, located 2 km (1.2 mi) from the town of St Blazey and 5 kilometres (3 mi) from the larger town of St Austell, Cornwall.

The complex is dominated by two huge enclosures consisting of adjoining domes that house thousands of plant species, and each enclosure emulates a natural biome. The domes consist of hundreds of hexagonal and pentagonal, inflated, plastic cells supported by steel frames. The first dome emulates a tropical environment, and the second a Mediterranean environment.

Inside it’s up to 37C at the top by the water fall. Short sleeves and comfortable footwear is recommended.Limited hanger space in the link Building for your coats etc. Please don’t leave any valuables there or any baggage.A camera takes about 15 minutes ( or up to 1/2 an hour in winter) to acclimatise in The Humid Tropics Biome So spend a while taking it all in, before you snap away.
