May half term for families at Bodnant Garden

May half term is a special time at Bodnant Garden. There are 80 acres of glorious spring garden for families to explore and enjoy together, and lots of fun activities to help you make the most of your visit.

Through the holidays from May 25 to June 2, families will be able to follow a simple, self-led trail around the garden and tick off some of the #50Things nature activities along the way.

May is a great time to experience Bodnant Garden’s birdlife too. Join our Dawn Chorus Walk on Monday May 27, at 5.30am. It's an unmissable spring highlight and well worth getting up early! Booking is required for this event, see our What's On page for details.

On Tuesday, May 28, the Poem mausoleum will be open to visitors (and every last Tuesday of the month through summer.) If you’ve ever wondered what’s inside the mysterious Victorian building in The Glades, here’s your chance to find out.

And of course there's 80 acres of spring garden in bloom - displays of rhododendrons, cherry blossom and bluebells - crowned at the end of May and early June by the flowering of our famous Laburnum Arch.

You can enjoy all this with extended opening hours in May and June, from 9am – 5pm. The garden is also open late on Wednesday evenings, to 8pm, from April to the end of September, when you can bring your dogs for summer evening walkies.
