The Eden Project – Cornwall
The Eden Project lets you experience a tropical rainforest, right here in the UK. Situated near the south coast of Cornwall, it’s within an hour’s drive of almost any holiday destination in Cornwall or Devon. Within the hot and humid ‘biomes’ you’ll find all sorts of weird and wonderful tropical plants, including many we consume every day – like bananas, coffee and grapes. Kids will learn about the relationships between plants and people, and the issues facing our food and sustainability. At 660m long, the Skywire zip line, above the biospheres, is the longest in England.
