This weekend we visited the Eden Project near St Austell. I’d booked it at the beginning of the summer and was really looking forward to it, then the holidays started and I started to dread it a little bit. It’s not that I don’t like the Eden Project, I went there with my husband pre-kids and had a great time, but living in Cornwall during the summer and having seen the traffic jam to the local beach reach the end of my road a mile away I was understandably a little concerned how busy it would be. We were also paying to stay in a bell tent overnight which lead me to wonder if we were basically paying rather a considerable amount of cash to be turned into human sardines with small kids to keep happy. Ouch.
