Details

The National Botanic Garden of Wales is a very special place; a garden for all seasons but this remarkable attraction is so much more than a garden.
 
With many specially-themed areas, wonderful plant collections, sculpture, science, wildlife, water features, history, heritage, the British Bird of Prey Centre, shopping and eating, it will take you more than a single visit to experience everything on Planet Botanic.
 
Within its 568 acres, there’s a world of wonders waiting to be discovered, from cascades and waterfalls to watching eagles fly as well as some of the rarest plants in the world.
 
The Garden's centrepiece is the Great Glasshouse designed by Norman Foster and Partners. Inside the amazing tilted glass dome, is a Mediterranean landscape dominated by a six-metre deep ravine. Rock terraces and sheer faces are cut by streams and waterfalls. A lake provides a humid habitat at the foot of the chasm. Visitors are able to experience the aftermath of an Australian bush fire, pause in a Spanish olive grove or wander through collections of fuchsias from Chile.
 
There's something for everyone at the Botanic Garden, from a tranquil lakeside stroll and the peaceful surroundings of the Japanese Garden, to the dramatic water features in a restored Regency landscape and awesome encounters with hawks, kites, owls and eagles.
 
You’ll find us just off the main M4/A48 dual carriageway in Carmarthenshire, just an hour west of Cardiff.
