This stunning Garden has two distinct parts. The upper garden around Bodnant Hall consists of the Terraces - there are five in all, and Italianate in style featuring impressive buttressed walls and brick paths, curved steps, pergolas and lily ponds. Nearby are the formal lawns edged with gorgeous borders displaying a vareity of herbaceous plants.
Below these is the lower part of the Garden; beneath a canopy of towering trees varieties of shrubs clothe the steeply sided banks of The Dell, where you will experience a different world. Here the little River Hiraethlyn tumbles over a waterfall and flows past hostas and hydrangeas.
Here at Bodnant Garden we grow a wide range of interesting and beautiful plants from all over the world, particularly China, North America, Europe and Japan that are suited to the Welsh climate and soil. As well as this, care has been taken to place the plants in such a way that they enhance each other and contribute to the general beauty of the Garden throughout the seasons.
The Garden will interest amateur and professional gardeners, artists, photographers and families alike.
Take a tour around our site and enjoy the delights Bodnant Garden has to offer.
