Tourists are in for a treat at the National Botanic Garden of Wales this August with the launch of a

special ‘Return Ticket’ that will allow free entry for a week.

Anyone buying a ticket to the Garden during August will be allowed back in FREE of charge for seven days after the visit.

Head of marketing David Hardy said: “We get a lot of feedback from visitors about how they weren’t able to get round to see all the different parts of the Garden on their visit.

“We do say ‘You won’t be able to see it all in a day’ but people from out of the area not familiar with the Garden are often caught out. So we thought this would be a good way of ensuring that, if they want to come back and see some more, they can – and for free.”

The Garden is spread across 600 acres when you add Waun Las National Nature Reserve and the magical wooded valley of Pont Felin Gât to the formal core of the attraction. There is also much to see, with recent additions including the fabulous “From Another Kingdom” exhibition about fungi, the new Green Technologies Trail around the Garden’s various sustainability exemplars, and an archaeological dig to uncover the remains of what we think might be a medieval mansion and garden. The summer also sees a packed programme of family fun activities and fascinating guided walks, with a focus on the plants, art and history of the Garden.

So it definitely makes sense to give yourself plenty of time to enjoy the Garden and its many facets to the full.

The ‘Return Ticket’ will apply to all full price admission bought between August 1st and August 31st.
