Eden Project voted onto list of landmarks that define Britain
Written by The Cormorant Hotel
The competition is being run by the High Life magazine, which is owned by British Airways, and in association with The Independent newspaper. Open until Friday, anyone can vote on a landmark they feel defines Britain the best, by visiting the website: highlife.ba.com/21landmarks. Voting for the competition closes on Friday 15th May so if you are looking to vote, be quick!
The winning 21 landmarks will be chosen by a panel of judges, which includes architects, historians and critics. These will then be published in the August edition of High Life as part of a feature, and anyone who has voted will be in for a chance to win a visit to Claridge's hotel, with dinner at the Fera restaurant within the hotel.
The Eden Project is located just a short distance from us here in Fowey, Cornwall, and first opened in 2001 after two and a half years of construction. The iconic structure is instantly recognisable, and was even used in the filming of the 2002 James Bond film "Die Another Day"
More recently, the Eden Project has been host to a number of great musical acts, including Brandon Flowers, Blink-182 and the Kaiser Chiefs. This year, they are playing host to Elton John, Paloma Faith and Paolo Nutini amongst others, establishing it not only as a place for environmental education, but also as a top music venue.
