Eden Project to have dedicated campsite

One of Britain’s top tourist attractions is to get its own dedicated campsite this summer.

The Eden Project in Cornwall will be opened up to tents for two months as part of a link-up with the Youth Hostels Association.

The camping facilities will be available for 60 days during July and August and will be able to accommodate up to 80 campers.

It’s the first time the Eden Project – listed in June’s Camping magazine as one of the 10 coolest places in Britain to visit – has had permanent camping onsite and it is expected that the YHA will operate the facilities every year.
