Gardens of Wales

Bodnant Garden

The National Botanic Garden of Wales

Home to the 'Great Glasshouse'. At the centre of the National Botanic Garden of Wales is the world's largest single span glasshouse. The glass dome covers 4,500 metres – that's more than 23 tennis courts.


Aberglasney

In the Tywi valley of Carmarthenshire, Aberglasney Gardens cover approximately 9 acres, including two woodlands. The pigeon house in the gardens has a rare magnolia tree boasting giant leaves which are almost three feet in length.


Bodnant Garden

Created in the 1870s, Bodnant garden has a spilt personality. It has two parts - the upper garden around Bodnant Hall is formal and refined and the lower garden, known as the 'Dell', is wild and shady. The garden spans 80 acres and has commanding views across the Conwy valley to the peaks of Snowdonia.


Portmeirion

The whimsical Italianate village is home to 70 acres of wild and exotic gardens. Visit in April and see the magnolia campbelli's enormous pink flowers.


Dyffryn Gardens and Dyffryn House

55 acre Grade I listed gardens, situated about six miles from Cardiff, south east Wales in the heart of the Vale of Glamorgan countryside. An exceptional example of Edwardian garden design, with formal lawns and an extensive arboretum.

Now leased by the National Trust, Dyffryn House is open to the public.
