We visited here over a month ago and I’m honestly still so taken aback by how much we enjoyed ourselves.
We arrived early and were the last to leave. We picked an absolutely beautiful day to go, clear and sunny.
We came with 3 children,...More

Many thanks for hugely brightening up a dull November afternoon, LozBach, with your tremendously positive review. I mean, we think so too but it's nice to hear it from visitors - especially from a family group. We like to think of ourselves as "a great...More
Went on a damp Saturday afternoon which may have been a poor choice but I was still charged £8.18. The gardens seemed untidy, with paths messy. Only one tea room (out of 3) seemed to be open. The Welsh/English commentary and information boards are randomly...More
The whole setup at the NBGW is superb. Not just for those interested in the vast array of plants and gardens, but overall a great historical reference point for those interested in the history of the area and the estate in particular. There are great...More
What a special time we had during the 1430 display of those beautiful birds of prey. The star of the show had to be Midas the golden eagle no arguing with him. The red kites were splendid and so were the other birds as well.

The restaurant service is very slow as the cashier had to keep stopping to serve coffees and teas....More
A fantastic time spent last week watching these magnificent creatures in flight being expertly handled by their careers in the centre . A fun and informative display of owls eagles kestrels to name a few. The highlight for my granddaughter was a chance to be...More
Lots to do in a beautiful setting - butterfly house, Mediterranean greenhouse, exhibitions and a kids play area surrounded by beautiful countryside. Doesn’t sound like much but it is so easy to while away hours here looking at the beautiful plants and creatures. Especially now...More
We were garden people but you don't need to be to enjoy the gardens. Buggies are available for those with walking difficulties, so it is easy to get to the further reaches of the garden. We especially enjoyed the dome and the walled garden.
I always find loads to do and see as I am a keen photographer, there are hundreds of exotic plant, fish, butterflies, vintage chemist shop, shops and cafe with plenty of inside seating, hope this helps. cheers Phil
