Wales Carmarthenshire

Tywi Valley Gardens

Two very different but equally appealing gardens compete for your attention in this part of Carmarthenshire.

The National Botanic Garden of Wales is a 560-acre complex that opened in 2000, with a range of themed gardens and the world’s largest single-span glasshouse among its attractions. By comparison, you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d wandered onto the set of a period drama at Aberglasney Gardens. Its formal walled gardens date from Elizabethan times with a unique cloister garden at its heart.
