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

Coronavirus guidance: The garden, Welcome Centre and tearooms remain open to visitors. Please follow the latest Welsh Government regulations and guidance when visiting. From the 26 December this includes maintaining a 2-meter social distance, wearing your face covering indoors (unless eating at seated areas) and complying with the rule of six.

Areas closed: Furnace hillside and the west side of The Dell are currently closed due to damage caused by Storm Arwen in Novemer 2021. For your own safety please do not enter areas roped off and marked closed.

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.

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.

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 2022/2023 dogs are welcome every day from October to March and on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from April to September. Please always use short leads and follow our Canine Code - find more 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: In line with coronavirus guidance we're only able to offer a take away service at this time, due to the reintroduction of mandatory table service in licensed premises. This means our indoor seating will remain closed until restrictions are lifted. The Pavilion tearoom near the car park and Magnolia tearoom near the garden centre are open daily. You can also get refreshments from our kiosk in The Dell at weekends and during holiday periods. 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.
