Singleton Botanical Gardens
The beautiful Botanical Gardens are based in the old walled garden of Singleton Park. The gardens contain fine specimens of rare and exotic plants from around the world. They are at their most spectacular during August when a full programme of events, tours and demonstrations are staged during Botanics in Bloom.
The Botanical Gardens house one of Wales' premier plant collections, with spectacular herbaceous borders and large glasshouses.
Although the gardens are at their most stunning in August, there is something to see throughout the year. The herbaceous borders are a fantastic sight from late March until mid October, and even during the harsh winter months the garden has lots to offer with up to 200 different plants having been seen in flower during the Christmas season.
As this garden is set within the tranquil surroundings of Singleton Main Park, it is a very relaxing place to come and browse or gain inspiration for your own garden. There are plenty of places to sit and admire the delightful views.
Singleton Botanical Gardens are free to enter. Parking can be found on Sketty Road (A4118) outside the park, or Blue Badge holders can park outside the main entrance to the Botanical Gardens.
If you would like to organise a group or school visit to either Clyne Gardens or the Botanical Gardens then please call the individual gardens in advance to arrange your visit.
