Welsh Wonders Part 2

It's not just the huge glasshouse that impresses at the National Botanic Gardens of Wales. You can walk along one Europe's longest borders, and there's a magnificent double walled garden to explore, complete with new glasshouse for exotics.

Carol Klein would love this border!

This house was the servants' quarters. The main house has been pulled down

A moooving artwork!


  1. I've heard so much about Wales NBG before and their magnificent glasshouse. Glad to see more photos of it! I enjoyed your photologue and definitely worth the visit. Superb plants (and water feature on part 2) :)

  2. I love visiting botanical gardens in general, but this seems to be a particular nice one. Impressive planting beds, pool, glass house, and artwork! And everything looks so well taken care of. I hope I can visit one day myself, but for now thanks for the tour!
