The third £130m Eden Project resort set to open in the UK – with waterfront attractions, play areas and immersive shows | The Sun

ANOTHER Eden Project is in the works – and it hopes to open by 2026.

Having first opened in Cornwall in 2001, the attraction is often named one of the best of its kind in the UK.

And new images have revealed another Eden Project hoping to open in the country.

Eden Project Dundee was first announced back in 2020.

However new images have revealed what the new £130million resort could look like.

Similar to the attraction in Cornwall, the main focus will be on plant life and nature.

Guests will be created by a “green gateway” at the entrance, which will connect the parks to the waterfront. 

There will be three areas across the resort, exploring human's "relationship with nature".

Along the River Tay will be walled gardens “showing the city’s industrial heritage”.

There will also be live music, immersive experiences, play areas, as well as food and drink stalls and gift shops.

While ticket prices are yet to be announced, it was confirmed it would have affordable pricing.

It hopes to attract as many as 500,000 tourists a year.

The website currently says: "Eden Project Dundee will be a landmark development for the city, transforming the former gasworks on East Dock Street into a beacon for regeneration and green tourism.

"It will encourage visitors to think, feel and act differently by revealing how we can learn from and be inspired by nature. 

"The project will combine exhibits, performance, learning, play, immersive experiences, world class horticulture, live music, art and food, beverage and retail spaces, all integrated as essential parts of the overall experience."

Dundee City Council leader John Alexander said during the announcement at the V&A Dundee event: “Eden Project Dundee is a world-class project which will deliver hundreds of jobs, huge visitor numbers and tens of millions of pounds into the local economy.

“As the plans revealed today show, there are tremendous opportunities for education, inspiration and connecting our diverse communities.

“Although it will attract visitors from far and wide, Eden is very much for the people of Dundee."

The planning application for the resort is to be submitted later this month.

It’s not the only new Eden Project resort hoping to open in the UK.

Eden Project Morecambe hoped to open next year, but this has been pushed back to 2026.

The £125million beachfront resort will have "shell-like" domes surrounded by outdoor gardens as well as a well-being area, Natural Observatory and immersive theatre.

Other Eden Project plans include Australia, New Zealand, China and Costa Rica.

If you can't wait until then, there is a new attraction at the Eden Project in Cornwall.

The Nature's Playground play area opened earlier this year, with slides and ladders, swings, and a nine-metre-tall "Tree of Life" tower.

If you fancy going a bit further afield, a botanical attraction in Europe has been dubbed ‘better than the Eden Project'.
