Cornwall's Eden Project: An Eco-Adventure
- Humid tropics Biome: Under a dome large enough to hold a full-size jungle, discover the explosion of textures, sights, and smells that is a living tropical rainforest.
- Warm Temperature Biome: Discover how many of the fruits and flowers we love come from one climate band, circling the planet, with arid summers and rainy winters.
- Roofless Biome: Explore 30 acres of terraced outdoor plantings featuring "crop" plants that have changed the world, like tea, lavender, hops, hemp, and sunflowers.
About this Falmouth tour
Dubbed an Eighth Wonder of the World, and winner of the British Travel Award for Best UK Leisure Attraction for four years running, this epic destination in Cornwall is unlike anything you've seen before. A sprawling conservatory of multi-domed greenhouses built into a deep crater, Eden is a living, breathing gateway into the amazing relationships between plants and people, filled with fascinating insights and ideas about how we can live a sustainable future, together.
Your GoBe host will get you oriented, then set you free to start your independent exploration of this mind-blowing environment. The Visitor Center, at the lip of the crater, takes you through how Eden was created. If you're up for some garden rambling, the gently sloped pathways leading through Eden's terraced Outdoor Biome showcase the thousands of plants we use for medicine, fuel, materials and food in everyday life.
At 4 acres and a soaring 180 feet tall, the Rainforest Biome is the world's largest greenhouse – big enough to house an entire rainforest. Hundreds of full-size trees and tropical plants from South America, Africa, Asia, and Australia form a green canopy with paths that reveal surprising sights around every corner.
The neighboring Mediterranean Biome covers a world of plants sharing the dry, temperate "Med" environment around the world, including South Africa, Australia, Chile, and California. Walk among orange and lemon trees, old olive groves, gnarled grape vines, and a wonderland of colorful flowers.
One sure thing about Eden. Once you've been there, you'll want to return.
It's a good thing plants don't need sleep
The Eden Project isn't just a fertile environment for flora. Turns out music flourishes here, too. Since 2002, the Eden Sessions summer night concert series has become one of the UK's hottest tickets. With the domes as backdrop, artists like Peter Gabriel, Amy Winehouse, Pet Shop Boys, Vampire Weekend, Kaiser Chiefs, Florence and the Machine, The Kooks, Mumford and Sons, Skrillex, Ellie Goulding, and Elton John rock the flora big time.
