Welcome to the National Botanic Garden of Wales

‘Firebreak’ lockdown

The Botanic Garden will be closed from 6pm on Friday October 23 in accordance with new coronavirus legislation.

After this “firebreak” lockdown, we will reopen on Monday November 9.

During this time, we will keep you updated with all the goings-on here and hope to see you all next month.
