Top 100 Attractions Review

Aberglasney is home to one of the most prettiest and probably most historic gardens in Wales, dating back as far back as 1477 to be exact. I have visited gardens all over the United Kingdom and all are just as impressive as the next, but the gardens here at Aberglasney really are quite special. Of course, you don't have to take my word for it, poets through the ages have been inspired by Aberglasney, and now beginning to inspire travel authors such as myself. With a wide variety of events in the gardens Calendar to chose from, there is always something going within the house and gardens. Friday nights through the summer are especially popular, as this is the night where food and live music come together like a well tuned violin. The catering needs are supplied by the team at the very popular Maryellen's Tearooms, and they do not disappoint!

Aberglasney Gardens

Attraction

Aberglasney Gardens

Spectacularly set in the beautiful Tywi valley of Carmarthenshire, Aberglasney Gardens have been an inspiration to poets since 1477. The story of Aberglasney spans many centuries, but, the house's origins are still shrouded in obscurity.

Aberglasney Garden has probably been the most facinating garden restoration project underaken. The garden covers an area of 10 acres and destined to become one of the finest gardens in the U.K

Explore the ancient formal gardens with its pools, parapets, cloisters and arches, and then discover the rare and unusual plants that are turning the rest of the garden into a plantsman's paradise. The Mansion, Garden and Shop are open Every Day except Christmas Day.(The shop is accessible to visitors without the need to pay admission to the garden)
