Eden Project in Cornwall

Eden Project photos of a day there at Easter 2001 after opening

A lot of our guests at Corisande have been to the Eden Project. The overall opinion is that it is worth the entrance money, around £10 a head and was an interesting couple of hours wandering through the domes...but that it will be much better once the plants have had more time to grow.

Perhaps the answer is to come to Cornwall and look at it now, then come back later and see how it is progressing. Everyone so far that has stayed with us has been glad they went.
