Easy to find as well signposted. Plenty of car parking. Very costly entrance price NT have to look at the pricing as there are many that would like to visit but are priced out. Exceptional gardens well maintained with all the plants, shrubs and trees marked well. Possible to visit many times of the year to witness the effect of... More

As a national trust member we decided to visit on a crisp November morning. The staff were very friendly and informative in entry. All the ponds were frozen which the children thoroughly enjoyed cracking.... We walked to the tearoom first where there was an open log fire outside....the children toasted marshmallows for free.... Again staff were lovely. We had hot... More

We had perfect weather with the sun out all day. We spent 3 hours roughly but could have spent more. Definitely a must do in the area.

We have visited many gardens over the years, but this one is really special. It certainly ranks as one of the very best in the UK & worth several hours of any ones time to take the time to explore this wonderfully constructed gardens. These range from beautifully constructed formal gardens to wild woods, with probably some of the tallest... More

Having recently seen these gardens on a television gardening programme, we were very keen to visit Bodnant Gardens whilst we were in North Wales. The attraction is very easy to find and the car park is ample but it must be said is set on a hillside. We were greeted by a very friendly gentleman who was a volunteer. He... More

What a place. We went in October as we had heard about the acer trees. The colours were absolutely spectacular, all the reds and oranges and yellows. Nature at its best. We went round part of the gardens as there was too much to see in one day.the trees and the formal gardens were better than we had expected and... More

As my parents live in Conwy and we are all Nat Trust members, Bodnant is always on my "Must Do" list whenever I visit. It never disappoints and varies seasonally making Bodnant a really good reason to buy Nat Trust Membership as it differs every time I go and seems to have a new area opened up yearly. The grounds...
