Visit Wales

Explore Wales through its gardens

One Historic Garden’ is a collection of seven glorious gardens and parks that have been uncovered, restored and reinvigorated in South and West Wales.

A land revealed through seven gardens

Each park or garden has its own special horticultural highlights and attractions. Together, the collection of gardens reveals to visitors the best of the history and cultural life of South and West Wales. Wander and explore the rich seams of history, poetry, landscape and Victorian grandeur that lie behind these gardens.

Walk through an ancient cloister, watch as an historic hidden terrace is uncovered and brought back to life, and see specimen trees that were originally destined for Kew yet thrived where they were first brought ashore.

Meander alongside a stream, spot an otter or kingfisher, enjoy the tranquility of a wildflower meadow and discover where poet Dylan Thomas found youthful inspiration.

In easy reach

Our seven gardens – Aberglasney Gardens, Bryngarw House and Country Park, Colby Woodland Garden, Cwmdonkin Park, Margam Country Park, Penllergare Valley Woods and Scolton Manor – are easily accessible from the M4 and A40 along the southwestern edge of Wales.
