While we were on holiday in Paignton in July 2003 we took the opportunity of visiting the Eden Project in Cornwall - it was certainly well worth the visit. It is really quite an impressive sight on approach and I am sure there is nothing quite like it anywhere else in the world. The plants and flowers inside and outside the biomes are really quite fantastic.
"Inside The Biome"
Here is a picture taken inside the biome. It is extremely hot and humid inside and you have the feeling you are actually in the tropics instead of Cornwall.
"Art in the Eden Project"
As well as plants and flowers there is some very unusual art work to be found at the Eden Project of which this photo of "Eve" is one.
Here is another sculpture - iron man ploughing
"Another View "
Another view of the Eden Project showing the back of "Eve".
