visit the stunning Eden project when staying at our hotel on the river Fowey

The Eden Project, close to our hotel on the River Fowey, is to be awarded with a £1.9 million grant to create a permanent exhibition that will be focused on the links between humanity and the planet we live in.



The investment came from Wellcome's Capital Awards Scheme which will support the creation of Invisible Worlds, ten new exhibits about human's relationship with the world, ranging from microbiology to what affects our future.

Head of policy at Eden, Gus Grand, said: "Invisible Worlds is an exhibition for our time, and we're delighted that this award from Wellcome will enable us to transform the Eden Project, to explore the world we now know lies beyond our senses."

As around 90% of life on earth is microscopic, this exhibition will not only attract more people to the Eden Project but also provide a fun educational programme for the visitors.

The Project previously installed an exhibition, supported by Wellcome, called Invisible You, about the human microbiome. It captured the public imagination and has been one of the most popular exhibitions that Eden has staged.

The Eden Project is just a 20-minute drive from our hotel on the River Fowey, and makes for a great day out. You can explore the exotic plants in the stunning biomes and wander the gardens. There are also workshops and tutorials held throughout the day so you can get some gardening tips or learn how to help wildlife in your garden.
