Escaping the holiday crowds to Cornwall this Christmas? Then you won’t want to miss the wonderful Christmas program at the Eden Project! Prepare yourself for an enchanted walk through a rainforest, ice skating, story telling, crafts workshops, Cornish choirs and of course, meeting Father Christmas.
All of this and more takes place at Cornwall’s most famous attraction, The Eden Project, between 28th November 2015 and 3rd January 2016.
The Eden Project consists of three sphere-like greenhouses, called biodomes, built entirely out of hexagonal window panels. The three huge domes house thousand of species of plants from all over planet Earth.
As you can imagine, Christmas at this magical location is something really special!
The Enchanted Rainforest is the most popular event, taking place in the Rainforest Dome after nightfall. It’s a magical audio-visual show that will tickle the imaginations of kids and grownups alike, as you make your way down the meandering paths, following mysterious spheres of light and listening to a beautiful original music score.
From the jungle, head straight to the ice skating rink! Skaters can hire skates or bring their own, and helpful “skating penguins” are on call for young skaters who need a little extra help.
If you prefer something a little more relaxed, you can listen to fairy tales, or head to the Mediterranean Dome and learn how to make elf hats and candy cane mice.
No Christmas would be complete without Father Christmas! At Santa’s Grotto you can deliver your Christmas gift wish list to him in person and take a peek at the elves’ magical toy workshop.
Finally, if you fancy a spot of refreshment during your visit, there’s always tasty hot winter food and cold drinks available along the way.
The Eden project is only 4.4 miles from CLC Trenython Manor, which takes about 12 minutes by car.
