The surrounding Atlantic coastline is rugged, wave beaten, and provides
some spectacular scenery.
a busy port which provided transport for the countys tin industry,

into a buzzing, cosmopolitan tourist resort. In recent years the
popularity of Newquay has grown tremendously not only because of
the natural beauty of the surrounding area, but also because of
the central location and attractions it has to offer.

Play golf, go sea fishing off the beach or rocks,
or deep sea fishing by boat, full or half day trips
available from the harbour booking offices, coarse fishing for tench,

is the Eden Project? The Eden Project's mission is to: "Promote
the understanding and responsible management of the vital relationship
between plants, people and resources, leading towards a sustainable
future for all."
It is a way for all to discover how we depend on plants and how
we can help to manage and conserve them for our mutual survival.
To enhance the appreciation of the Eden Project's fabulous plant
collections, artists have been working in a wide range of media;
automata, sculpture, animation, puppetry, live music and performance
to enhance interpretation. Visitors also have opportunities to participate
in trails to link personal interests to the stories eg plants and
music, plants and health, plants and sport, plants and art etc.
There will be themed events from tea tasting to chocolate days and
"hands on" workshops from performance arts to horticulture, and
from cooking to dyeing etc. If you are interested in food, health,
conservation, music, gardening, theatre, art, craft, energy, beauty,
adventure, business, civilization, cosmetics, engineering, architecture,
fashion, travel, world culture, local culture, anthropology, politics
and much more... then the Eden project is for you.
