5 reasons to visit Bodnant Garden in North Wales, United Kingdom.
80 acres of magnificent Garden in the beautiful Conwy Valley. Stunning collections of plants and trees from around the World. Plants that give interest and colour throughout the seasons. Varied Events Programme offering something for everyone. The Bodnant Garden is open 362 days a year, excluding Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
This beautiful garden is one of the most popular in North Wales. It is not far from Conwy, on the North Wales coast. This hillside garden allows spectacular views over towards the Welsh mountains. The garden divides into two quite distinct parts. One much more formally planted than the other. Near to the Hall, a number of beautifully planted and ordered gardens and terraces are interlinked. So the garden with planting downhill towards ‘The Dell’ decidedly is more wild and informal.
A particular favourite of the gardeners at Bodnant has been the mass planting of many varieties of Rhododendron. Some of them are unique to Bodnant which reflect the opinion of the 2nd Lord Aberconway. He believed that these plants, which grew so successfully at Bodnant, should be cultivated en masse. And when in bloom, these flowers form a sea of colour throughout Bodnant.
The gardens at Bodnant have much to offer. Perfect for games of hide and seek, picnics, and simply admiring the landscaping, the gardens are popular with people of all ages. For the more horticulturally minded, the Bodnant Garden Centre offers a vast array of different plants and trees.
Furthermore, if you visit the garden in early Spring (March and April), you will enjoy the sight of carpets of golden daffodils and other spring bulbs. As well as the beautiful blooms of the magnolias, camellias and flowering cherries.
