Eden Project Turns Corner

One of Cornwall's most famous tourist attractions is back in the black.

It is after Eden laid off almost 70 staff - losing £1.4m last year.

Now bosses at the biomes say this year they are £2m in surplus and visitor numbers are rising.

Over its first ten years the world's largest indoor rainforest welcomed more than ten million visitors.

But by 2013 only 850,000 people came through its doors.

Now the attraction says visitor numbers are up a couple of percent during the first five months of the year.

That is despite the publicity around the closure of the rail line at Dawlish and the winter storms.

The amount that visitors are spending is rising too.
