Christmas At The Eden Project

Down here in Cornwall we are lucky enough to have The Eden Project right on our doorstep. Now I think Eden is a magical place to visit all year round but at Christmas they really step it up a gear. The place is transformed into a winter wonderland with ice skating, reindeer, Santa's grotto and so many fairy lights!  Even if you don't want to take part in anything its lovely just to walk around and soak in the Christmas spirit. You can also take dogs into the grounds now so they can get in on the action too, just maybe not the ice skating!

One of my favourite parts which is new to this year is the tropical biome which is transformed into an enchanted forest. Yes, fairy lights, carol singers and SNOW! They have put so much effort into this part this year, it was a really special festive experience and unlike anything we have in Cornwall. There is even a part at the end of the trail where you can hang up and leave Christmas messages for lost loved ones which was lovely to see.

If you live in Cornwall or if you visiting this Christmas I would definitely set aside an evening to spend at The Eden Project it's nothing like you'll see anywhere else! It's such a different experience to be around beautiful tropical plants and flowers but to be singing carols and ice skating! Also be sure to stop in the gift shop at the end, it's one of my favourite parts they have some really unique gifts and decorations.

Have you ever been to The Eden Project? I'd love to hear what you thought! x
