Cornish favourites: The Eden Project

As well as posts written and published on my Travel Words site I also wrote about the Cornish gardens we visited on our trips to the county before we moved, so I am going to reblog those too. This visit to the Eden Project was on a very wet day in April almost five years ago, probably a good day to be inside as I recollect it being very cold too. And interestingly a robin featured in this article too!

    I must have missed that one, Jude. perhaps I don’t follow that blog? I thought I did, but get easily confused these days…
    Looks like a great place, but £47 for two adults is a big ask, even in this day and age.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

      When I was bringing up my four children as a single parent I found days out were totally out of reach for us. A train to York and walking around the city (for free) was about all I could afford. I daresay it is no easier now, unless you are prepared to put it on a credit card. I wasn’t.

    I remember it but I’ll go and have a recap. 🙂

    1. Heyjude says:

      No-one commented on that post. I may have done another post apart from the most recent ones.

      1. restlessjo says:

        Yep- you got me! 🙂 🙂

    It is in all likelihood very expensive to maintain such a place. And what is money when you get to see something worthwhile as the Eden Project!

    1. Heyjude says:

      True, a lot of the money goes towards worthwhile projects, but I still think £71 for a family of four is a lot for a day out.

    Before my time – and I gasped at the price!

    1. Heyjude says:

      £27.50 now on the day or £25 advance. An expensive day out.

    1. Heyjude says:

      There are some lovely things inside the tropical biome, it just doesn’t change much from a plants(wo)man’s point of view. And none of the plants are labelled. I’d enjoy it more if they were.

    £27.50 now, did you get a local’s pass Jude? I was tempted but know I probably wouldn’t go more than once in a year.

    1. Heyjude says:

      I did Gilly, cost me £20 so I am determined to go at least four times!

      1. Lucid Gypsy says:

        Good plan, then it will have earned its keep 🙂

        1. Heyjude says:

          Especially if I combine the trip with a visit to somewhere close by.
