The Eden Project

The Eden Project is an educational establishment, which emphasises the interdependence of plants and people and the value of sustainable living.  Set in the heart of Cornwall, it is one of  UK’s top gardens and environmental tourist attractions. The project is situated in a 60-metre crater, where two giant conservatories have been constructed in which to grow plants from different climactic regions.

The Eden Project is an unforgettable day out for the whole family. With two large conservatories in the world the Eden Project is a gateway into a fascinating global garden. The project also has a visitor and learning centre and cafe.
