Bodnant Garden

UK travel information

Bodnant Garden is situated above the River Conwy and has views across the valley towards the Snowdonia range. The gardens cover an area of about 80 acres with plants from all over the world, particularly China and Japan that are suited to the local soil and weather conditions. The garden is owned by the National Trust.     

Bodnant Garden

In the spring there is an array of bulbs, azaleas and rhododendrons; in summer there are herbaceous borders, roses and shrubs in bloom, whilst in autumn there is colour from foliage and berries. Of particular interest is the Laburnum Arch which blooms from the end of April to early June. 

Bodnant Garden is actually in two parts. There is the upper garden which mainly consists of terraced gardens and informal lawns, and the lower garden, the Dell, which is informal and has small streams and a mill. 

Children can be entertained by making use of the  Family Trail booklet which is full of questions and puzzles designed to keep active minds occupied during a visit. There is also a number of garden related Activity Sheets including Brambly Hedge, Beatrix Potter, Wind in the Willows, Stonework and Statuary, Mad about Trees, and Flower Fairies to help encourage interest in and understanding of Bodnant Garden. 

There are many special events, such as open air theatre performances, available throughout the year. As these change frequently it is best to contact the Garden for information about current events before visiting.


Refreshments are available from the Bodnant Pavilion Tea Room and there are take away snacks and drinks available. 

Although some parts of the gardens are flat there are many steep slopes. Easier routes are marked for those with wheelchairs or pushchairs. Toilets with disabled access are available as are baby changing facilities. Bodnant Gardens has a number of wheelchairs available free of charge on a first come first served basis. 

Next to the garden there is a plant and gift centre and the Art and Craft studios which have a range of plants and gift for sale. Also next door is the Bodnant Plant Nursery which sells a large range of plants.
