You’ll find many attractions in-and-around St Austell to help keep every member of the family happy.


Eden Project


As one of Cornwall’s biggest premier attractions, the Eden Project houses the largest rainforest in captivity, grows some of the world’s most fascinating plants and features huge tropical biomes.


With constantly changing exhibitions and events, there is always something new to discover and enjoy.


Lost Gardens of Heligan


Romantic gardens, enthralling wildlife and ancient woodland paths are waiting to be discovered at The Lost Gardens of Heligan.


Considered to be one of the most mysterious and romantic estates in England, it has become one of the area’s most popular attractions. But previously lost for decades, buried under years of overgrowth, the estate was once a far cry from the beautiful and unique environment it is today.
