Attraction Information

Bodnant Garden is the perfect place for a bright and early morning walk or an idyllic afternoon walk. This delightful British Garden is a world-famous Welsh gem which draws lots of tourists every year!

The garden is filled with beautiful spots and an abundance of plants all around - from intimate corners to woodlands, sweeping lawns and grand terraces. Passed down through the generations the garden is now looked after by National Trust Wales. If we do say so ourselves, it is by far the star of the National Trust Collections! 

This Christmas at Bodnant Gardens
With intimate corners, sweeping lawns, grand terraces and verdant woodland, there are many gardens in one at Bodnant...
Blow away the winter cobwebs with a festive stroll through the accessible winter garden with its sensational display of foliage, flowers, and scents. Or follow the longer route around Furnace Hill! 

Your family strolls will definitely leave you hungry for some delicious festive treats from the tea-rooms!

The History
Nestled in the Snowdonian foothills of North Wales, Bodnant Garden was shaped by the Victorian vision of one extraordinary man, Henry Pochin. The garden began blooming with wonders of the world from 1874. Henry Pochin and his family filled the garden with plants collected by famous global explorers such as Ernest Wilson, George Forrest and Harold Comber! How cool is that? 

Bodnant is the trendsetter for all gardens, why? Because this beautiful garden is the home to the earliest and grandest laburnum arch built in 1880. Its history also traces back to Britain’s earliest magnolias which were introduced from China in the late 1800s! If you are a real history nut or plant hunter, you'll be wow'd by the unique collection of rhododendron hybrids which were born and bred here from the 1920s.

The Garden
Put your comfy shoes on, grab a bottle of water and wander around the paths until you’ve explored every corner of the garden. Kids can play and run around freely while you simply unwind, surrounded by stunning views and lush greenery. 

Need a breather? There are plenty of benches scattered around, so pick your spot, kick back and soak up the peaceful atmosphere. 
Bodnant Garden is known as a 'Garden of All Seasons'. Whether you want to explore the beautiful Spring months or be dazzled by the frosted landscape in Winter, it's the perfect place to visit all year round! 

The Gardens
Marvel at the Blue Poppy of the Himalayas. Double-take the Fire Bush of the Andes, or discover the five National Collections - Magnolia, Embothrium, Eucryphia, Rhododendron forrestii and Bodnant Rhododendron Hybrids. Bodnant Garden is home to Wales’ largest collection of UK Champion Trees, which provide a year-round spectacle.

Garden lovers will fall in love with the swathes of daffodils, camellias, magnolias, and rhododendrons. Did you know Bodnant Garden has the finest rose garden in Wales? With over 1,500 rose blooms including David Austin's fragrant English Roses, roses can be found climbing terrace walls and filling the terraces from June to September.' You can also see the dramatic views of the Carneddau mountains - that's quite the backdrop, no? 

The jewel in the crown of Bodnant Garden is the colourful Winter Garden. Kids will love this wild and winding flourish of nature. What was once an Edwardian rockery, has now been transformed by the garden team at Bodnant Garden into a sensational display of foliage, flower, bark and scent. 

Self-Led Trails & Seasonal Events
There are plenty of things to do at Bodnant Garden. Try out one of the self-led trails, play Pooh Sticks, explore the willow word, hope across stepping stones or go wildlife spotting and tick off some of the National Trust’s ’50 things to do before you’re 11 ¾’! There's also the Play Park to explore by the car park too with zig-zag walkways, a mini suspension bridge, and rope walks.

Food & Drink
Whether it's an afternoon tea in the Winter or a cold beverage in the Summer months, you'll be happy to know there are places to refuel after your day of garden exploration. Choose from the indoor Pavilion tearoom or dine al fresco from the garden's takeaway riverside kiosk.
Enjoy a menu of hot and cold light bites, cakes and bakes, and drinks to takeaway is also being served from the Dell kiosk daily.
