"The Garden of Eden" Top 5 Page for this destination Saint Austell Things to Do Tip by Geoff_Wright

Saint Austell Things to Do: 59 reviews and 95 photos


The idea of the Eden Project began as a dream in 1995 by its current Chief Executive and co-founder, Tim Smit, CBE. Tim was born in the Dutch fishing village of Scheveningen in 1954. He was educated in England, gaining a BA Degree in Archaeology/Anthropology from Durham University. He also has a musical background, having worked in the industry for 10 years as a composer/producer in both rock music and opera!

How appropriate, then, that my photo here shows some beautiful and vibrant Tulips, probably from Holland.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
