Evolution in the Gardens of Eden

A visitor views The Eden Project’s rainforest canopy from the new Cloud Bridge.

Visitors to Cornwall’s Eden Project now have the opportunity to trek across an aerial rope bridge, shelter from tropical rain and travel through clouds thanks to a unique, newly opened walkway.

The Weather Maker is the latest phase of the Rainforest Canopy Walkway. It allows people to explore the world’s largest indoor rainforest from the treetops via a Canopy Rope Bridge stretching 23 metres between two of the tallest trees in the 50 metre-high Biome and a fully-accessible Cloud Bridge, where visitors can travel through swirling rainforest clouds. Meanwhile, the Mediterranean Biome has a new area devoted to some of Australia’s extraordinary flora.

The new ‘garden within a garden’ will have three sections – one telling the story of the role of fire in maintaining habitat, another showcasing plants such as wax flowers, everlastings and kangaroo paws and a third section representing the diversity of flora in Australia’s most impoverished soil. Eden will also open a new 109-bedroom hotel on site in April 2018. Special rates of entry are available at The Eden Project for groups of 15 or more people.
