Create an itinerary including Bodnant Garden
See plant species from all over the world originally grown from cuttings that arrived at Bodnant Garden more than a century ago. The world-famous garden here--which was developed around Bodnant House starting in 1874--provides spectacular views across Snowdonia National Park. This 32 hectare (80 acre) garden is split into two parts: the upper level surrounds the house and features Italianate terraces, specimen trees, and manicured lawns, with paths that take you to the lower level. Referred to as The Dell, the lower level is home to a wooded valley, wild garden, old mill, and even an enchanting spillway waterfall into the River Hiraethlyn. Enjoy fresh, local dishes at the Pavillion Tea Room, ice cream at The Kiosk, or home-baked scones and cakes at the Magnolia Tea Room. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Bodnant Garden by using our Tal-y-Cafn trip app.

  • Beautiful gardens but downside is you need to be reasonably fit to get the most from your visit. The car park is at the top of a steep hill and after a walk around the vast gardens, it was a real...

  • Beautiful 80 acres of garden. Gardens were designed to incorporate the natural setting and surroundings. The cafe for lunch and gift shop was good too.

  • Beautiful 🥰 we loved it, such a massive variety of flora and so beautiful this time of the year. The smell of the flowers 🌼 makes you feel in a magical world 💐 as they keep changing every step you take. The staff are really nice and informative. A nice garden shop with many different products. A few handmade, art shops are also inside the grounds with a Caffe and ice-cream shop to discover. A lot of parking space and even if there are many cars all the time the grounds are so big that you don't feel suffocated by other people and you can enjoy your day by walking, riding your bike, have a picnic or just smell the flowers. We kindly recommend it. Thanks for all involved keeping the grounds so tidy and welcoming.
  • Absolutely wonderful. Great rhodedendrum displays, brilliant laburnum tree 'tunnel', and many more fantastic flowers, bushes and trees. Very easy to use the free car park. Remember your National Trust card to gain free entry. Very glad we visited and will return. Good cafe, enough WC facilities and some nice plant and craft shops. We found the staff very pleasant and helpful.
