Welcome to the National Botanic Garden of Wales

The Botanic Garden is open

Our hours are 10am-6pm seven days a week and there’s plenty to see and do – even if we cannot open everything just now.

The British Bird of Prey Centre is also open, seven days a week, with daily flying displays at 11.30am and 2.30pm. (Numbers limited per display).

Our catering and retail operations are up and running with Season’s cafe, the Cwtsh, the Gift Shop and our Garden Centre all open.

For the moment, the tropical Butterfly House and the Apothecary’s Hall remain closed.

From Monday (14th September), we ask that everyone complies with the new rules and wears a mask in all of our indoor spaces e.g. Gatehouse, The Great Glasshouse, Retail outlets and Cafe (except where exempted).

We also require that visitors who wish to use our cafe, fill in a track and trace form.

For more information on face coverings, see the government guidelines.

Please remember to keep your distance from other people not in your group, heed the advice, read the signs and stay safe.

If you cannot visit the Garden now, we have plenty of garden-related ideas and activities for you to try your hand at . . .

Why not keep a record of the wildlife in your garden? You’ll be amazed at the variety of species you will discover in your own backyard – and we have an easy step-by-step guide to help you. If you are busy gardening, 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
