National Botanic Garden of Wales - Carmarthen, South Wales

The National Botanic Garden of Wales was created within a beautiful 568-acre Regency park, combining 200-year-old historical features with spectacular modern architecture and landscaping and a collection of some 100,000 different plants.

The Great Glasshouse at the National Botanic Garden of Wales has been named in the top 10 of must-see UK gardening attractions and it is the only place in the world where you can visit the Mediterranean, South Africa, Australia, Chile and California on the same day. Covering 3,500 square metres, its rocky terraces, sandstone cliffs and gravelled scree slopes are contoured to reflect the natural environment and to create a wide range of habitats, balancing light and shade and varying moisture levels to suit the needs of different plants.

With 400 acres for you to explore, Waun Las National Nature Reserve is an enchanting mosaic of flower-rich meadows, evocative woodlands, waterfalls and cascades. Over the past five years, we having been restoring this landscape for your enjoyment, well-being and next adventure. Historic features have been unearthed, restored and renewed. Pathways, bridges and lakes have been reinstated to bring you closer to nature.

Exhibitions in the botanic garden of Wales include a 19th Century Apothecary's, Bioverse which explores the wonders of how plants work and the 360° Theatre Botanica, an unique introduction to the plant world. There's an award winning Seasons restaurant two excellent cafés, and plant sales area.
