Bodnant Gardens

Bodnant Gardens


There's 80 acres of magnificent gardens to explore, with lovely Italianate terraces, formal lawns and magical wooded valley.  From here there are stunning views across to northern Snowdonia.  Don't miss the magical 'Dell'.

Dogs are welcome for walkies on #WagWednesday evenings (17:00 to 20:00), from the beginning of April to the end of September.  During the low season, October to March, they are welcome during the day as well.

Neighbours at Bodnant Garden Centre have a range of plants propagated from the garden - the only place where you'll find genuine Bodnant specimens.  Why not take one home and grow in your own garden as a lasting reminder of your visit?
