Walk through the gardens of Wales

Glorious gardens are Carmarthenshire’s pride and joy, no wonder the county is known as the 'Garden of Wales'.


Though only opened in 2000, the National Botanic Garden of Wales is already legendary: it has the world’s largest single-span glasshouse, is a Dark Sky Discovery Site and hosts a packed programme of annual events. Nearby Aberglasney is home to marvellous blooms year-round; appreciate them all the more knowing that the estate was on the brink of collapse when it was rescued in 1995 and hard work saw the gardens restored to glory. Fancy combining history and horticulture? Head to the Hwyel Dda Centre, whose gardens are themed around the Laws of Hywel, 10th century King of Deheubarth and, later, most of Wales.
