Travel Tips for Saint Austell

The Gardens of Eden

by Geoff_Wright

Finding your way to the Eden Project is quite easy. There are signposts to Eden on all the major roads. Once you arrive, you will be ushered into one of the many parking areas. There is transportation down to the Biomes in the form of a Tractor pulling one or more 'trailers'. Do remember just where you leave your car. Each car park has a fruit as a reminder; Plum, Peach, and so on.

Don't Miss The Boat

by Geoff_Wright

Here's a picture of the 'Tropical Trader', bringing home the bananas, LOL!

Although it may appear to be glass, the glazed panels which are supported by a lightweight steel structore of poles, are actually made from a material called ethyletetrafluroethylene (ETFE for short). This material is extremely strong, and allows untra violet light to pass through it.

Hemp

by freya_heaven

Hemp has been used or Milleniums for its medicinal and relaxant properties. Also it is a very strong product for rope, clothes, boat sail and bank notes among others.

We were surprised to see hemp being grown so openly here, apparently Eden needed a special licence to grow it & a barrier from the public. A wonderful hemp rope fence has been created as the barrier by local artist George Fairhurst.

Gateway to the Eden Project

We returned not so long ago from a day out to the Eden Project during our Cornish holiday.

Coming soon will be transport and accommodation tips for the area, plus photos from our visit. Stay tuned!
