The Garden is open

The National Botanic Garden of Wales is open

We’re thrilled to be welcoming our visitors and members back to the Botanic Garden.

Now that we have reopened, we hope that you will enjoy the restored parkland. Take a look at the maps situated around the Garden and go and explore the great outdoors!

Pre-booking is not essential, tickets can be purchased on the day of entry at the Gatehouse.

Admission tickets are valid for the following 7 days after your visit and permit free unlimited entry for this period.
