Eden Project accommodation

Eden Project accommodation

With its distinctive white domes, the Eden Project is Cornwall's best-known tourist attraction. Since opening to the public in March 2001 nearly 13 million people have visited the site in Cornwall. If you are looking for Eden Project accommodation we have a good selection of cottages to rent nearby. Its two huge biomes have become renowned features not merely of contemporary Cornwall but of modern-day Britain.

The Eden Project has been created in a former Cornish China clay pit close to St Austell in south Cornwall. More than simply a green theme park, the Eden Project demonstrates the need for environmental care to create a sustainable future of our own. The Project aims to visually tell the story of man's dependence on plants. It is a rich, global garden where you can experience nature at its best.

The biome structures, which dominate the Project, are the biggest conservatories in the world split into a 'humid tropics biome' and a 'warm temperate Mediterranean biome'. Eden is also home to world-class sculpture, Fairtrade cafes and cutting-edge architecture. The New York Times has called it 'the eighth wonder of the world'.

The Eden Project is primarily the idea of Tim Smit, the man behind the Lost Gardens of Heligan. It is a charity operating as a social enterprise which has also helped the struggling local economy and provided much-needed employment in the area.

The Eden Project is very extensive, requiring a great deal of walking. Once in the domes, you will immediately notice the change in humidity as you enter the Humid Tropical Biome, where temperatures reach 28 degrees centigrade - so regardless of the outside temperature, be warned that you will need a top layer of clothing that is easy to take off and easy to carry. On hot days, sun protection is also advisable as the transparent covering of the biomes transmit UV light.

You cannot visit the Eden Project without being amazed at the sheer magnitude of it all and visitors can expect to come away with a better understanding of the environment and their interaction with it.
A whole day can easily be spent at the Project and can be either the highlight of a short break in the area or a great day out during a longer holiday in Cornwall.
