St. Austell, England, is a seaside Cornish town 30 mi/50 km west of Plymouth. It is home to the Eden Project, a major horticultural attraction that draws gardeners—as well as folks just interested in nature. One of its striking, geodesic domes contains an entire rain forest. You can spend hours exploring the various plant collections, which represent most regions of the world. There are also outdoor concerts in the summer.
There's not much else to recommend St. Austell. In fact, if you're planning a visit to Eden Project, opt to stay in one the area's pretty fishing towns, such as Fowey or Polperro.
