The Original Garden Visitor's Guide

Bodnant Garden

Bodnant Garden is one of the finest gardens in the country not only known for its magnificent collections of rhododendrons, camellias and magnolias but also for its idyllic setting above the River Conwy with extensive views of the Snowdonia range.

Visit in early Spring (March and April) and be rewarded by the sight of carpets of golden daffodils and other spring bulbs, as well as the beautiful blooms of the magnolias, camellias and flowering cherries.

The spectacular rhododendrons and azaleas will delight from mid April until late May, whilst the famous original Laburnum Arch is an overwhelming mass of yellow blooms from mid-may to mid- June.

The herbaceous borders, roses, hydrangeas, clematis and water liles flower from the middle of June until September.

With outstanding autumn colours and the Winter Garden, Bodnant is truly a garden for all the seasons. With new areas opening up to visitors there’s more to see than ever.
