The Eden Project
Open since 2000, the two huge biomes that make up the Eden Project are full of thousands of different species of plants that have been collected from diverse regions and climates all over the world. The larger of the two biomes recreates a rainforest environment to suit the plants suited to a more tropical climate, which makes for a fascinating day of exploration, discovering exotic and unusual plants and trees, which would otherwise be inaccessible unless you travelled across the globe! There is also an outdoor area of the Project which holds plants and trees native to the UK and to the Cornwall area. The Eden project is open every day of the year except Christmas day, so there’s always an opportunity to visit this unique, ever changing and ever evolving green museum.
The Minack Theatre
This open-air amphitheatre, with spectacular views out towards the Atlantic Ocean, offers a variety of drama, musicals and opera every summertime. The theatre put on its first show in August 1932, and the venue has hardly changed. It is open throughout the year and welcomes more than 80,000 visitors to their performances, whilst over 150,000 visitors simply go to have a look around and experience the beautiful views and the magical atmosphere of the theatre. There is also a café to be able to take a pit-stop whilst enjoying the gorgeous views of the ocean. The theatre is open all year round, however opening times do vary with the seasons, so check their website for further details.
