Garden of Wales

Garden of WalesThese wonderful pink lilies  (Crinum powellii) a member of the Amaryllis family, also known as Swamp Lily are out NOW at The Garden of Wales!

Only a short drive from Old Oak Barn, The National Botanic Gardens of Wales  have some great events coming up this Autumn.  The garden is both a visitor attraction and a centre for research and conservation. It has the world’s largest single-span glasshouse measuring 110m long by 60m wide designed by Lord Foster. Nearly all our visitors drop in for the afternoon or for longer. During this summer 2015 children have been treated to lots of extra activities. We think you too will enjoy a visit this Autumn. It is one of Carmarthenshire’s top attractions!
