As you might remember in my recent post about Cornwall I mentioned we took a visit to The Eden Project for the day in which I took way too many photo’s for them to be featured in my Cornwall post so I decided it would be best to do a photo diary of all the photo’s I took on the day.
The Eden Project is one place I have been wanting to visit for a while and couldn’t resist taking a trip while we were so close to it. Well I say close it was a good couple of hours drive away but still closer than home.
I did want to do this in some sort of order of the day but honestly my photo’s are all over the place and they totally all look the same and it’s been a while now since we visited so I can’t remember what we did first and last. My terrible memory is getting worse.
The Eden Project is famous for it’s massive Biomes which hold thousands of varieties of plants, trees, flowers and buildings and you literally cannot miss them. As soon as you walk out the entrance there’s a massive photo taking platform which is where you can get the best shots from. The amount of time they must put into looking and caring after the plants must take so long because every single plant and flower looked super healthy and so pretty which is why I couldn’t stop taking photo’s.
The Mediterranean Biome had some of the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen, so vibrant of full of life. Oh and the smell, it’s just smells like your on holiday abroad. It’s just super relaxing.
The Rainforest Biome was something else though. I’ve never seen anywhere with so many plants in my entire life. Well, it is the largest indoor rainforest in the world so that’s probably why but it’s like stepping into a completely different world which I love.
“Feel the tropical heat in our stunning Rainforest Biome and experience four of the world’s rainforest environments: Tropical Islands, Southeast Asia, West Africa and Tropical South America.” – The Eden Project.
Even though the temperature in the Rainforest Biome was unreal and I was sweating everywhere I didn’t want to leave, I just wanted to take it all in. I’ll have to remember next time to wear less clothes or maybe just take some shorts to change into haha.
I really could have stayed in the Biome much longer but the heat was really exhausting so just a tip for if you ever go don’t wear too much and take lots of water with you! You can thank me later.
Even the outside gardens were massively impressive with miles of pathways, oh & they have a zip wire if you’re feeling brave, it looked amazing and I was tempted but decided against it, I wasn’t feeling it haha. We defenitly didn’t spend enough time seeing everything though. I feel like we didn’t even look around half of the Eden Project because it’s just THAT big.
I swear I could have taken thousands of photos although I’m sure my camera memory would not have been happy but that’s just how beautiful The Eden Project is and there’s honestly so much to do, so you won’t ever be bored.
You will very much be in your element if you love photography!
You won’t ever regret making the trip to The Eden Project if you are anywhere around Cornwall. It was the best experience and I would totally go back if I could in the near future. Let me know if you’ve been or are planning to go?!
