The Eden Project

The Eden Project is home to many types of plants ranging from England itself to tropical countries. It is one of the biggest tourist attractions in Cornwall and used very often for school field trips because children would learn more about botanics and gardens. They also hold exhibitions and workshops for people or arranged groups who'd like to learn more about sustaining the wildlife and saving nature more effectively. In summer they have stage built up for music festivals. And turns out, there is an accommodation as well for people who would love to stay overnight!

To be honest I went here because I was interested in seeing the unique architecture, kinda reminded me of the Blue Cube for Olympic 2008, Beijing's Aquatics venue, only this one is a group of half spheres which they called Biomes. Two of the largest ones were filled with Rainforest (it is the largest indoor Rainforest in the world) and Mediterranean theme respectively. I was a bit disappointed because I saw rainforest before since I'm from a tropical country, but maybe it'd be a different experience for the visitors who are from the other side of the world. In the Mediterranean part there was a small garden of sunflowers though, enough to excite and stop me to take pictures.

On that day the weather was very warm and being inside the Biomes just added the humidity level. However we can get refreshed in The Eden Kitchen, Med Terrace (inside of the Mediterranean Biome), Juice Bar or Eden Coffee House. I found The Eden Kitchen was very cute with rows of long tables and self-served drinks and food, felt like a high school cafetaria, you know? Anyway, adults price is £25, students £20 and it's 10% cheaper if you buy the ticket in advance online.
