Regency Restoration Parkland at National Botanic Garden of Wales

A heritage landscape awaits...

Enjoy a stroll around the National Botanic Garden of Wales, award winning Regency Restoration Parkland. A five-year project which aimed to restore features of a Regency period landscape, created in the late 18th and early 19th century for William Paxton, in what is now Waun Las National Nature Reserve.

The project, which took five years to complete at a cost of more than £7 million, is the largest of its kind undertaken in Wales and includes two new lakes, bridges, dams, cascades, a waterfall and an extensive network of paths, all set in 300 acres of wooded parkland.

The Botanic Garden has been designed to be accessible to all visitors whatever their ability.

All paths within the formal Garden area are wheelchair friendly and there are several manual wheelchairs available at our Gatehouse.

If you are disabled or have mobility issues, they also have a regular shuttle buggy service to take you to most parts of the Garden including down to the restored parkland and return you to the Gatehouse. The buggy drivers will also be happy to answer any questions you have about your visit.

Every Monday and Friday, plus the first weekend of every month are doggy days. Take your pooch for a mooch on a lead around the 568 acres of rolling countryside and explore the recently restored parkland.
