Britain’s Most Accessible Gardens – Age UK


The Garden has been included in Age UK’s Britain’s Most Accessible Gardens.

The article, by Robyn Lewis, highlights the UK’s most accessible public gardens and, as well as the National Botanic Garden of Wales, includes Kew Royal Botanic Gardens in London, Sissinghurt Castle Garden in Kent and RHS Garden Wisley in Surrey.

As one of Wales’ main Millennium Projects, accessibility was a key factor in the National Botanic Garden of Wales’ design, with all paths within the formal garden area being wheelchair and mobility scooter friendly.

The Garden also offers a daily shuttle buggy service where volunteer buggy drivers transport those with limited mobility from the Garden’s main entrance (Gatehouse) to either the Great Glasshouse, the Stable Block where our Seasons Restaurant, gift shop and gallery are located, or other areas of the Garden.
