Tours + Talks + Trails
We want you to have great time when you visit us.
One of the ways we can help to do this is by putting on lots of things for you to do and see whilst you’re here.
We run a variety of free talks and tours of the Garden, mainly during the peak holiday periods. We’ll advertise special themed tours here and on our What’s On page.
Garden visitors have the choice of taking four trails.
Take a Magical Mystery Tour – a fun trail of the weird and wonderful aspects of the Garden. Be prepared to be asked to kiss a loved one, hug a healing stone, make a wish, play a tune and listen for an echo.
Green Technology Trail - follow our new cartoon character, Lili Lloyd, as she takes you round ways we generate micro-energy, conserve water, grow organically and build sustainably.
Waun Las National Nature Reserve - we’ve created a network of paths to take you across our organically farmed meadows and through Pont Felin Gat, a beautiful ancient woodland rich in historic relics from the Middleton Regency Park.
Sculpture Cymru Trail 2012 features outdoor sculptures created by Sarah Tombs, Perryn Butler, Paul Kincaid, Dilys Jackson, Deborah Lewis and Susan Roberts
