Then it was time to dash back for the 4pm re-opening of the rainforest biome for the “show”… Eden’s website describes this new event as a “Walk Through the Enchanted Rainforest: A Theatre of Christmas Memories: a unique combination of live performance, installations, soundscapes and beautiful lighting brought to you by our talented friends at WildWorks theatre company”. Going in at twilight to explore as it gradually gets darker is truly magical (the darker the better) and a unique experience, to be highly recommended.
This visit was in 2014.
The views during the whole walk to the beach were just breath taking. We had to stop and take more photos, as it was just so beautiful, a very memorable walk indeed. We all just loved the beach and had the best day. We paddled, swam, found jellyfish, played rounders, ate pasties, sunbathed and kept and eye on the tide.
Here are a few ideas of how to have fun in a heat wave. We hope these are useful suggestions and that you enjoy them!
Get in the Pool
When the temperature hits 30C the best place to be is the swimming pool. It’s easy to spend a whole day relaxing on the loungers on the sundeck under a parasol, then having a dip in the pool to cool off, and repeat! The only problem with this is as the pool temperature averages 30 degree Celsius, it’s pretty warm also!
We decided it was time to try out Europe’s longest & fastest zipwire, which takes you on a flight over the iconic Eden Project. For a long time I have totally not wanted to do this at all, as it looks very high up and scary. We are regular visitors to the Eden Project and the SkyWire is very popular, people are always whizzing across bravely overhead.

We love dogs and our dog friendly accommodation is perfect, with beds and bowls provided for our canine guests, to save on car space. Walking is one of the very best ways to discover the beauty and the variety of the Cornish landscape, at all times of year.
Cornwall offers over a hundred beaches, between them they offer all the activities you could want – sandy beaches for sunbathing and sandcastles, rock pools, surfing. Many of the beaches are dog friendly, and the coastal paths above the beaches provide stunning views.
