So what is the Eden Project All About? The Eden Project is a really fascinating biodome structure. Inside these biodomes are plants that have been collected from across the world and are all being grown here. These domes are made up of hundreds of hexagonal and pentagonal shapes that have then been inflated: meaning they look like giant bits of bubblewrap. These domes are then heated and mediated to different temperatures to try and emulate the natural growing conditions needed for all of the different species of plants that they have there: one being tropical and the other being Mediterranean.
The biodomes are the most famous part of the project, mainly because of their unusual appearance. However, there is so much more that you can see there. You can see global allotments, a Spiral Garden, a wooden ship built to look like it’s sailing through tea leaves and over 70 other exhibits for you to have a look at: you can easily spend 3 days looking around this Project, it’s really interesting. It’s worth noting that only two adult Eden Project day tickets are included in this deal.. child tickets can be purchased for just £13.50 (children under 5 go free)!
If you don’t fancy just looking around the project, you could go and venture into the nearby areas of Cornwall. St Austell and Truro are really not that far away, about a 25 minute drive. Here you’ll be able to go and experience the typical towns of Cornwall and maybe enjoy a bite to eat in a traditional pub or a drink in a sea front cafe.
