A Day at the Eden Project

Bodelva, England, United Kingdom
17 Kudos
My husband’s cousin told us about the Eden Project. You may have seen it’s geodesic domes depicting an off-planet city in sci-fi movies, but the “park” is actually a large-scale eco and environmental sustainability project.

Once a massive clay quarry, the project is the brainchild of innovator Sir Tim Smit. The domes are Biomes housing the world’s largest man-made rain forest and a Mediterranean climate environment. The cafes and restaurants feature foods that are grown onsite and the gardens are beautiful to walk through.

The Eden Project is an educational charity and learning center. It’s a great place to learn about ecology and sustainability, but it’s also a fun family adventure.

The Rainforest Biome gets warmer the higher you go, so it’s a good idea to have a bottle of water with you.
