The National Botanic Garden is truly Wales's answer to England's Eden Project. I was in awe of the place when I first visited, I definitely wish I had more time to have seen everything, but at least now I have an excuse to go back! What we at Top 100 Attractions absolutely adore is attractions that help us to learn and understand our natural habitat, but with the slick way the team at the National Botanic Garden do it is very hard to beat. There is always something happening here and you will truly need to set aside a whole day to see everything, which in our estimation is fantastic value for money. Also with a couple of cafes and a good food restaurant you needn't worry about what's for lunch?
