This is the view of the Eden Project you get on
arrival, having passed through the Visitor Centre at the entrance. In front
of you to the left is the Rainforest Biome and
to its right, the Mediterannean Biome. Surrounding
both indoor biomes is the Outdoor Biome which represents the temperate world
including Europe, America, parts of Asia and, of course, Cornwall.
can also see the lake (currently covered, to the left in front of the
Rainforest Biome) which is used as a stage area in summer for the Eden
Sessions, the Eden Project's outdoor summer concert programme. In
winter the lake is transformed into a covered ice rink, part of the
Eden Project's 'time of Gifts' season.
To the right you can see the Core,
the Eden Project's Education Centre, with its copper-clad roof and behind
you the Visitor Centre building. If you look down you can see that the Eden
Project's smaller visitors are catered for so there's something for people
of all sizes to see. We're particularly keen on the one that encourages
you to 'look all around'.
The Rainforest Biome is the larger of Eden's two covered biomes.
Eden's Mediterranean Biome is 65 metres wide, 135 metres long
and 35 metres high, with an area of 6,540 square metres.
The Core, opened in September 2005, is The Eden Project's
new education centre.
