The Eden Project is one of the most popular attractions near our campsite in Cornwall, so why pay it a visit in 2024?
Famous for its iconic biomes, the Eden Projects introduces you to different ecosystems, with these biodomes mimicking climates ranging from tropical rainforests to Mediterranean environments.
First constructed in 1998, it opened to the public in 2001 so has been around for nearly a quarter of a century.
A fun and educational attraction near our campsite in Gorran Haven.
The Eden Project is home to thousands of plant species from around the world. Sights also include the iconic WEEE Man sculpture, made from waste electrical and electronic equipment, which stands at the entrance to highlight the issue of electronic waste.
The project is committed to sustainability and has won numerous awards for its environmental initiatives. It utilises renewable energy sources, including geothermal energy from a disused mine, and strives to reduce its carbon footprint.
Did you know that the design of the biomes was inspired by the structure of soap bubbles?
The hexagonal and pentagonal cells in the biome structures are similar to the patterns found in soap bubble clusters.
