The Eden Project is a visitor attraction in Cornwall in the United Kingdom, including the world's largest greenhouse. Inside the artificial biomes are plants that are collected from all around the world. The project is located in a reclaimed clay pit.
The complex is dominated by two huge enclosures consisting of adjoining domes that house thousands of plant species, and each enclosure emulates a natural biome. The domes consist of hundreds of hexagonal and pentagonal, inflated, plastic cells supported by steel frames. The first dome emulates a tropical environment, and the second a Mediterranean environment.
"We stayed here for 3 nights and had a most comfortable break. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. The breakfasts and bar snacks were superb and dinner in the restaurant was outstanding. Altogether a wonderful break. We intend visiting again within a few months." Sept 2012
