Eden Project reopens after flooding

It’s great to hear that the Eden Project has reopened after last week’s devastating floods in Cornwall.

Following a massive clean-up operation involving hundreds of staff, the eco-attraction opened yesterday, 24 November. Eden’s Visitor Centre and Core education building are now fully open while work continues on the waterlogged Link Building between the two Biomes and severely damaged ice rink. Fortunately, the Biomes and Eden’s plant collection escaped damage.

Eden’s official re-opening ceremony was attended by VisitCornwall’s head of tourism Malcolm Bell, who called on visitors to support people in the county. He said: “The message is that Cornwall is open for business – 99.5% of businesses are open as far as accommodation, restaurants, pubs and all the top attractions including Eden. If people are on holiday here they can make a very positive difference in terms of supporting people’s livelihoods.”
