    eden proejct is not so bad ya know...

    the rainforest bit is pretty cool really. The rest less so, but still worth a visit. BTW, if you do gift aid, you get a years free pass (might be useless to you, i dunno).

    yeah same for me, although as it completely ****** it down when we went, we popped in on the way home cos it was sunny!

    It'll be alright MB.
    I am a green enthusiast ( i.e. keen gardener, biologist, very keen on botany) but it's not really that sort of place. The domes are really good structures and interesting. Actually the more I think, the more I remember how I have tried very hard to appreciate the place on the three visits I have made - but not up my street. I hope that the weather holds up - the forecast isn't bad. Also hope that the crowds aren't teeming. (I'm not leaving my garden!!)
    It's not dreadful.
    Newquay - Blue Reef is fine, beach is OK. (Don't get kareokecol on to the subject of Newquay!!)

    thanks chesso and KC..... whats KCs gripe with newquay. oh not looking forward to trip now!! hehe

    Funny you should mention Newquay, I've recently got back from a couple of nights there myself. I don't know about the Eden Project as never been myself but there will be plenty for you and the kids to do in and around Newquay town. If surfing takes your fancy let me know as my Sis works as a surf instructor there so I can supply you with the details.

    How was the trip Beans?
