The Eden Project is one of Britain’s best-loved visitor attractions, and for good reason. From the beautiful collections of plants and flowers to the amazing range of activities on offer, this unique exhibit really does have something for everyone.
Here are 6 reasons why The Eden Project should be on your list of places to visit this summer.
It’s suitable for all ages
The Eden Project is a family-friendly attraction which is suitable for visitors all ages. The tranquil gardens are the perfect place to enjoy a peaceful stroll with friends before indulging in a cream tea in the Eden Coffee House or an authentic Mediterranean lunch in the Med Terrace Restaurant. And there are plenty of play areas and activities to keep the kids entertained too. The venue also hosts lots of additional children’s activities throughout the summer holidays, from outdoor games to arts and crafts sessions.
It’s the perfect rainy day activity
The great thing about The Eden Project is that come rain or shine, you’re guaranteed to have an amazing day out. You’re instantly transported to warmer climates, and can explore fragrant, tropical rainforests and meander through vast Mediterranean landscapes without even leaving Cornwall.
As well as the famous biomes, The Eden Project also has lots of beautiful outdoor gardens to explore, and if the Great British weather lets you down, there’s a fantastic visitor centre and a variety of restaurants and cafes to take shelter in.
You’ll have endless photo opportunities
One of the best things about escaping on holiday and visiting all the great local attractions is being able to create lifelong memories and share stories and photographs with friends and family back home.
From the beautiful collections of plants and flowers to the amazing outdoor sculptures, you can guarantee there will be plenty of opportunities for you to take selfies with loved ones and capture some amazing shots to share on Instagram.
You can take part in exhilarating outdoor activities
The Eden Project is home to Hangloose Adventure, who offer a range of exhilarating outdoor adventure activities. Perfect for thrill seekers and adrenaline junkies, the experiences include England’s longest and fastest zip wire, an exhilarating 25m freefall ride, and a giant swing which plummets you and two friends over a cliff edge at speeds of 50mph.
You’re giving something back
As well as a visitor attraction,The Eden Project is an educational charity. The money raised supports all sorts of great causes, from preserving rainforests across the globe and conserving Britain’s wildlife, to helping tackle isolation amongst local senior citizens through a weekly lunch club.
It’s also a great place to learn more about the environment, and this unique educational exhibit can help teach your little ones more about plant life, where their food comes from, and how to take care of the environment.
It’s a spectacular live music venue
Not only is The Eden Project a fascinating tourist attraction, it’s also a spectacular live music venue. Each year, visitors can enjoy The Eden Sessions summer concerts and experience the amazing natural acoustics of the site. This summer, the venue will play host to some world-class arts, including Gary Barlow, Massive Attack, Jack Johnson and Bjork.
