Rainy Day Activities: Discover Cornwall's Eden Project

St Austell, Cornwall

Five biomes nestled under five giant bubbles in the hills of Cornwall make for one of Britain's most impressive indoor eco-attractions.

In the middle of a disused clay pit in Cornwall, five giant bubbles lie wedged in the ground. They are the Eden Project's massive greenhouses containing thousands of the world's plant species within their iconic, slightly steamy walls.

While the Mediterranean biome takes you on a road trip from the olive trees of Europe to California, the hotly anticipated Rainforest biome awaits next door. A huge waterfall tumbles in the background as you walk through Tropical South America, West Africa and Asia, alongside the trees and plants responsible for keeping the world cool.

Next, head up to the new 165-ft jungle canopy for spectacular views, which at 90% humidity is not for the faint hearted. 

An educational and exciting day out, there's always a new discovery to be made at the Eden Project.
