“Amazing”
Reviewed 24 May 2012

I visited the Garden on the day it opened and have watched it blossom over the years to how it is today and operated with the help of staff and volunteers who give their time to make it what it is today. It is a credit to them all.

“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed 21 May 2012

Electric invalid chairs available, restaurant was clean, tidy and the food excellent. Poorly attended, only 21 cars in the car park - it deserves more!

“Exploring Carmarthen Area”
Reviewed 18 May 2012

We visited this attraction on a recent trip to Carmarthen & spent a very enjoyable day discovering plants we had never heard of.The views are absolutely breathtaking and the setting is perfect for this attraction.
We went on a couple of the many signposted walks around the area and saw some beautiful scenery- including a lovely waterfall,discovered alot about the History of the area & met some of the local wildlife.The fresh air and exercise helped us work up an appetite for coffee & Bara Brith in the tea rooms afterwards.
We caught the bus from Carmarthen (166) & it took us to & from the bus station to the front doors
of The Botanical Gardens.

“A Little Gem”
Reviewed 13 May 2012

We happened upon this place by accident but as we love walking round gardens decided we would break our journey and have a look round. How glad we were, it was one of the nicest botanical gardens we have visited and we ended up staying until closing time. A lovely place and well worth a visit

“BRILLIANT”
Reviewed 11 May 2012

Time will tell but these gardens are better than Kew.
Disable vehicles are avaiable. The Dome stands out with all its magnificent. Plenty of activites everyday.
Near by is a world class resturant The Pollen.
