Bodnant Garden is both a historical and prominent addition to North Wales tourism, and has been one of the very many staples of your stay here in this beautiful part of the country for almost 150 years. It’s founder, the revered Henry Davis Pochin decided that he would purchase a plot of land within the Welsh countryside in order to grow rare and exotic species of plants for his, and his families’ enjoyment.
Bodnant Garden has come on leaps and bounds since then, from the Laburnum Arch which draws in thousands of tourists throughout spring to marvel at the sheer scale of these beautifully cultivated plants, to the varied and numerous rare species of trees which are a sheer joy to behold.
Bodnant Garden features a daily guided Champion Trees Trail from October the 17th through to the 21st and can be joined from 2pm. There are also numerous enjoyable Woodcraft Demonstrations on October the 18th, 19th and 20th, from 11-2pm. From October the 22nd, you are also invited to join a self-guided Top Trunks Trail which is intended toward family entertainment throughout the half-term week. Whereas normally half term is tricky for parents in regard to keeping children stimulated and entertained, Bodnant Garden provides entertainment, education, and most importantly promotes an understanding of the area around us for children to look back upon for years to come.
Even for those who are not looking to entertain, Bodnant Garden has a slew of features for all who value nature. In fact, in this beautiful time of year Bodnant Garden is very special indeed.
