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.

Wow so glad we decided to visit on a beautiful summers day in July. Cant put into words the beauty of the gardens and the smells from the roses were out of this world. So beautifully maintained and so... more »
Stunning garden. Laid out over several levels with a number of different pathways which each reveal fabulous trees and planting which keeps the interest at a high level all year as the seasons pass. Formal gardens and woodland all in a beautiful and enchanting valley. The house is private but very impressive to look at. Something for all ages. It's quite a long way down to the lower levels but there are both gentle paths and more adventurous routes around.
Wonderful place to visit specially in summer. You will find various plants in this garden. Everywhere you look filled with trees and flowers. I have visited this garden several times but never get bored. Garden is well maintained by national trust and there is a fee to enter which is something worth paying. If you have national trust membership (about 10 quid per month) you can visit here as many times as you like. Highly recommend to visit and good place to spend a day with kids.
