The Eden Project is one of Britain's top visitor attractions and includes the world's largest greenhouse.
The project is located in a reclaimed Kaolinite pit, located 1.25 miles (2 km) from the town of St Blazey and 3 miles (5 km) from the larger town of St Austell, Cornwall. As such it only an hour away from our secret hideaway.
The complex comprises a number of domes that house plant species from around the world, with each emulating a natural biome. The domes are made out of hundreds of hexagons plus a few pentagons that interconnect the whole construction together; each of these is a transparent cushion made of tough plastic. The first dome emulates a tropical environment, the second a warm temperate, Mediterranean environment.
