The famous Eden Project - a scenic 1 hour 40 minute drive away and heralded as 'the largest greenhouse in the world'. Not to be missed.
From the Eden Project website:-
Welcome to our global garden: a place of beauty and wonder which explores humankind's dependence on natural resources.
Here you will find crops, landscapes and wild plants which reflect the amazing diversity of our planet. There's also internationally famous architecture and art which draw inspiration from nature; and a stage on which people working to make our world a better place can tell their stories.
A symbol of hope for the future
Ten years ago this place was a barren, exhausted china clay pit. Now its massive Biomes (one of which is the biggest greenhouse in the world) and millions of plants bear witness to what can be achieved by a can-do attitude
and the tenacity of the human spirit. Eden is as potent a symbol of hope for the future as you could find anywhere on earth.
That's the big stuff…simple pleasures await you here too: imaginative children's play areas, impromptu storytelling, workshops for all ages, a wide choice of delicious food, a shop full of amazing stuff from all over the world – and just sniffing the flowers, of course.
Dig a little deeper
We hope this website inspires you to dig deeper into what we do – our prizewinning horticulture, our programme of activities, our worldwide partnerships. But above all, please come and join us at Eden. In fact, since no two visits are ever the same, come often!"
