"More than just a green theme park, then? Eden is about connecting plants, people and places. We are a living demonstration of regeneration and we aim to reconnect people with their environments locally and globally" says the blurb. Which ever way you look at it Eden has since opening in 2001 become one of the UK's top 5 visitor attractions, deservedly so. Well worth trying to visit outside the high season holidays when you can feel like you're the only one there.
Two ways to get there, either take a train from St Ives to St Erth, from St Erth to St Austell and from St Austell to the Eden via a short bus ride or avoid all the hassle and pick up the local tour operator (Oates Travel) who run all inclusive packages via coach.
