Eden Project

With its distinctive white domes, the Eden Project is probably Cornwall’s best-known tourist attraction. But it’s much more than just a big green theme park and visitors can expect to come away with a better understanding of the environment and their interaction with it.  The Eden Project is sited in a former china clay pit at Bodelva, near St Austell, Cornwall. It currently consists of three biomes (a biome is a large naturally occuring community of flora and fauna occupying a major habitat), the Outdoor Biome, Rainforest Biome and Mediterranean Biome.
