St Austell, Cornwall, England
The Eden Project was a highlight of our journey in the United Kingdom.
After arriving at St. Austell train station bright and early at 6am, we decided to embark on the 2-hour walk to the Eden Project. Our efforts were rewarded as we arrived at the park just before it opened at 8am. The Tropical and Mediterranean biomes as well as the outdoor gardens, provided a truly unique and enchanting experience.
The Eden Project felt like a giant greenhouse, offering, us a one-of-a-kind day trip that left us captivated. It was a great day that we will always remember
