RICHADA THE CORNISH VIRGIN I have, in the dim distant past, written reviews on various attractions, or ‘days out’, both here and abroad, many of which I am sure you will have never heard of. Safe to assume however that in this case, even if you know nothing whatsoever about the Eden Project, you...

Pro Amazing!

Cons NOTHING!!

My Dad had to go to a conference at the Eden Project regarding sustainable housing. As he is disabled he needs a carer to go places with him in case he is ill or gets into some form of trouble. Normally his wife goes but as she was in hospital I got to go. (It put me in a bit of a difficult...

Well it’s nice to be back and get writing again. I thought I would write about the Eden project as it is a place I have wanted to visit for a long time and at last on this break I got the opportunity. A LITTLE HISTORY. The Eden project is a charity owned by the Eden trust. The site was purchased...

The Eden Project, dedicated to preserving as diverse a range of the earth's plant life as possible using "biomes" (like a giant greenhouse really and sort of spherical) to replicate their natural environment. Based in Cornwall is touted as the "Eighth Wonder of the World". (Here's a little known...

Where is it? The Eden project is situated near St. Austell, east Cornwall between A390 and A391. Since we were staying at the White Acres holiday park (White Cross area new Newquay), it is about 35 – 40 minutes drive on a fine day. However it was a rainy day. It took longer than an hour because...

The Eden Project opened in Cornwall in early 2001 and has established itself as a very popular tourist attraction, with over 1.2 million admissions per year, well in excess of initial expectations. The Eden Trust, the charitable organisation that runs the Eden Project aims to show how much man...

ProEducational attraction

ConsBest visited with an interested child!

The Eden Project has oft been touted as one of the new wonders of the modern world. Five years on from its opening in 2001, does it live up to this claim? Situated in picturesque Cornwall, not far from St Austell, The Eden Project has regenerated an old mining area and replaced an open china clay...

ProDifferent to everything else, a good cause

ConsExpensive if you only visit once in the year

One thing my partner wanted to visit whilst we were holidaying in Cornwall in the summer was The Eden Project, I will be honest I wasn't particularly keen on visiting if I'm honest as it didn't seem like my cup of tea. However, he wanted to go so we went along yesterday morning before we came...

“Eden - an Exotic Experience”

published 10/01/2004

ProUnusual, educational, thoroughly enjoyable

ConsExpensive

You can read about it in the media, you can hear people talk about it – but nothing prepares you for your first glimpse of the futuristic biomes which dominate the valley in which the Project is set. The Humid Tropics Biome, with a height of 55 metres, is large by anyone’s standards; one of my...

After visiting the Eden Project last year, I was surprised at how different my perception of it had been compared with the real thing. I found it a very surreal experience when I first saw one of the famous greenhouses peeking out from the valley floor, it really looks like some kind of...

“Eden goes Cornish”

published 08/11/2004

ProAll day attraction

Constiring to navigate

I’ve heard the Eden Project described as both ‘an incredible feat of human ingenuity’ and ‘a nice greenhouse’. Since my visit in October 2004 I can see both sides. At £12 per adult to get in you expect something of good quality, which it is. When you first set eyes on the biomes from the car park...

Last March we were visiting Cornwall and decided on a family day out to the Eden Project. Luckily we were staying only a few miles away and on previous years had gone and watched the making of the building. The first time I ever saw it complete I was in awe. It really does look like three...

ConsToo busy, but what can you do !

You know something is successful when the Eden Project started putting adverts in local papers discouraging people from visiting because of the crowds. The Eden Project, just incase you have been living under a rock, is a series of huge greenhouses (although calling then greenhouses is really an...
