Eden Project

This enormous global garden featuring various tropical biomes and exotic plants may be the closest thing to paradise on earth.

Paradise of Plants

In 1995, the same person who restored the Lost Gardens of Heligan imagined an even bigger task. So began the Eden Project, a global garden of biblical proportions. Recipient of the UK Leisure Attraction Award for four years in a row, the huge biomes of the Eden Project offer so much more than an average botanical garden.

Flora and Fauna

The Rainforest Biome is the world’s largest greenhouse, featuring tropical plants from around the planet, along with beautiful tropical birds. Visitors can also wander the sunny Mediterranean Biome, and check out seasonal plants in the outdoor gardens. There are many educational opportunities for children and adults alike.

Other attractions include various sculptures, including a gigantic bee. The Eden Project even boasts England’s longest zip wire. When visitors get hungry, they can sit down for a meal at the Eden Kitchen Restaurant or one of several other dining options.
