The Eden Project is a groundbreaking environmental, botanic, and geographical site in Cornwall; housing rare plants, showcasing the beauty of the natural world and promoting environmental conservation. With a fascinating natural history, biodiversity, and environmental science to discover, as well as plant varieties you won’t find anywhere else in the UK, the Eden Project is well worth a visit. Learning has no age limit, and this is an intriguingly educational day out for adults and children alike.

Getting to the Eden Project

One of the core aims of the Eden Project is to raise awareness of climate change, so it only make sense to get there by train. The Eden Project is situated in between Par station and St. Austell station, being less than 3.5 miles away from both. Simply hop on a CrossCountry service from stations like Exeter St. David’sPenzanceBirminghamManchester, or even as far away as Aberdeen! A quick bus or cab ride to follow will get you to the Eden Project ready to enjoy your day out.

About the Eden Project

The Eden Project opened its doors in 2001 after several years of careful conception, design, and construction. The mission of the Eden Project was to build and strengthen the relationship between people and the natural world. It aimed to repair the damage that had been done, to educate younger generations about the environment, and to build a better future. The main attraction of the project is the biome domes simulating rainforest and Mediterranean environments, as well as the surrounding botanical gardens and education centres focusing on the beauty and intrigue of the natural world. Since opening, the Eden Project has hosted huge events like the Eden Sessions, the G7 Summit, and the annual Big Lunch.

Things To Do at the Eden Project

There is plenty to do at the Eden Project on any day, but they also offer a wide variety of immersive activities and events to enjoy. From adventurous activities like zip wires, walking trails, and playgrounds to educational offerings focusing on particular plants like cotton, cacao, aloe, and more – any visit to the Eden Project is sure to be fun, wild, and educational all at once.

Alongside natural history and botanic exploration, there are some fantastic art exhibitions on display throughout the Eden Project. All engaging with the subject of the natural world, artists like Jenny Kendler, Peter Randall-Page, and David Kemp have all created signature art pieces that ask you to consider our relationship with the planet in a bit of a different way. This unique art trail is so wonderful not only because of the meaning behind the art or the beauty of the pieces, but also because they are dotted around the grounds of the Eden Project. Instead of one room housing several art pieces you can wonder at thought-provoking art projects embedded in the beauty of nature that inspired them.
