Famed for its 'bubble' conservatories (visible on the satellite image on the map below), a botanical and ecological park in a disused china clay quarry. The buildings and the setting are spectacular. The garden and landscape design are disappointing.

over 5 years by Julian 1 / 5not a gardeners paradise a it is aimed at giving an enviromental message rather than horiticuture which was very poor quality
about 6 years by Donna Hiser 5 / 5I went to Cornwall (from New Zealand)to see the Lost Gardens of Heligan and went to see the Eden Project because it was so close. In the event I thought the Eden Project was absolutely amazing - one of those 'must do before you die' activites. The whole project is awe inspiring, and has something for all ages and tastes. The commitment to conservation, the international collaboration, the engineering achievements, the amazing presentation of plants in different climatic zones stand out, but really the place has to be seen to be believed. I just can't recommend it highly enough.
about 8 years by Adam Hodge 3 / 5An extraordinary place- almost surreal in its size and modernity. Its popularity is almost its achilles heel..there are just SO many people visiting it [which is economically essential] and yet, as a visitor, a tad disconcerting..bit like waiting to get through customs/security at a busy airport..everything is so irritatingly slow.
