Welcome to the National Botanic Garden of Wales

The Botanic Garden is open

Come and explore this very special place.

Take a tranquil, lakeside stroll, marvel at the amazing Mediterranean plant collection in the Great Glasshouse.

Stay safe, keep your distance and stick to the rules

Our opening hours are 10am to 4pm every day.


If you can’t visit the Botanic Garden, we have plenty of garden-related ideas and activities for you to try your hand at:

And why not plant now to make a perfect pollinator haven ready for spring?

Help your local hedgehog population by creating a cosy hedgehog home.

If you are out in your garden, you’ll need to know all about our Saving Pollinators Assurance Scheme. It will help you be more kind to pollinators and the planet – and is all backed by the research work of our brilliant Science Team.

There are more ideas on our Growing the Future resources pages. And don’t forget to keep it Peat Free


Our restaurant is open.

We have indoor and outdoor seating that complies with the required social distancing.

We ask that everyone fills in a Track and Trace form when using the restaurant, as this is a Welsh Government requirement.
