The Eden Project, taking its namesake from the biblical Garden of Eden, is a botanical garden in Cornwall, England. Construction of the site began in 1998 and finished only three years later in 2001. Today, it is one of the UK’s most visited tourist attractions yearly, by both nationals and foreign visitors. In short, it is an arrangement of vast enclosures that emulate a natural biome, setting up and maintaining the conditions for exotic plants and wildlife specimen to survive within, where they usually would not outside of the domes. According to its website, the purpose of the Eden Project is to celebrate plants, the natural world, and to regenerate damaged landscapes. Inside the dome, tourists can explore a wide range of exciting natural attractions, such as a waterfall, exotic plants, as well as birds and insects not to be found anywhere else within the UK!
