Bodnant Garden, Tal-y-Cafn

#3 of 38 in Parks in Conwy County
Garden Nature / Park
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.

  • Say hi to George the Peacock! We went when the yellow archway was in bloom, and it was totally worth seeing. We spent half a day here, and the bus to get there wasn't too difficult from conwy. It is definitely a must see when you are in the area.
