Singleton Botanical Gardens

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 during August, when a full programme of events and tours are staged, 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 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.
