Welcome back to Bodnant Garden. Please take a moment to read our guide to making the most of your visit, safely.

Booking: We have removed the visit booking system. You don't have to book your visit to Bodnant Garden and it is no longer possible to prebook your visit in advance.

Face masks: In line with Welsh Government Regulations, you're still required to wear a face covering in most enclosed public spaces, including our Visitor Welcome Centre and the Bodnant Garden Centre shop, so please bring one with you. You are not required to wear a mask in hospitality settings, such as the Pavilion and Magnolia tearooms.

Before you visit: Check out all the information here on our website and download a property map so you’re armed with all you need to know in advance of your visit.

When you arrive: National Trust members will need to show their membership card on arrival at the Welcome Centre, and non-members pay on entry. If you've booked using the RHS Partner Garden, Gardener's World 241 or any other promotional offer please bring your offer card with you.

Parking: At peak times, how about car sharing or using public transport? There’s a stop outside the garden gates for the 25 Arriva service from Llandudno. If you are not visiting the garden, but shopping at Bodnant Garden Centre or craft units, consider coming at off-peak times when the shared car park will be less busy.

Accessibility: Manual wheelchairs are available from the veranda of the Pavilion tearoom near the car park. These are free to loan but can’t be pre-booked. Mobility scooters are permitted in the garden but please ensure your battery is fully charged. 

Dogs: In 2021 dogs are welcome every day at Bodnant Garden. Please use short leads and follow our Canine Code - find more about this on our Dogs Welcome page: https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/bodnant-garden/features/bringing-your-dog-to-bodnant-garden.

Toilets: All of our toilets are open – you’ll find these in the car park, in the garden centre and in The Dell.

Food and drink: You can enjoy light meals from our indoor and outdoor seating areas of The Pavilion tearoom near the car park and snacks at the Magnolia tearoom near the garden centre. You can also get take away refreshments from our kiosk in The Dell. You're welcome to bring a picnic too and will find tables and benches around the garden.

Shopping: Our National Trust gift shop has closed but our neighbours Bodnant Garden Centre are open and sell a range of Bodnant grown plants, and gifts.
