On our Christmas trip to Cornwall we spent the day at the Eden Project. We’d heard so much about it and it really lived up to expectations.
But we’ll let our video below tell the story. And this photo essay on the Eden Project!
What you need to know:
Admission: It costs £19.95 for an adult’s online dated ticket for entry into the Eden Project, and up to five pounds more if you buy at the door. This may seem a little expensive but keep in mind it’s a charity and you can get a day’s worth of fun out of the Project. The Eden Project kindly paid for our entry, but as always, our views are our own.
When to go: You can really visit all year round as the biomes in the Eden Project will keep you warm if it’s rainy and cold outside. Likewise, if the sun is shining it’d be great to make the most of the outdoor sections of the Eden Project. Because we visited around Christmas, it was extra magical, with reindeer in the park to pull Santa’s sleigh, and an ice-skating rink.
How to get there: The Eden Project is easiest to get to by car; the nearest village is St Austell. But you can also get buses from the village and if you cycle in you can skip any queues – they encourage environmentally-friendly transportation here!
