Aberglasney Gardens have been an inspiration to poets since 1477. The house and 10 acres of gardens set in the beautiful Tywi valley are being restored and offer the visitor a chance to see an extensive range of rare and unusual plants set in a world-renowned garden. There are three walled gardens, an Elizabethan/Jacobean cloister and parapet walk and the ‘Ninfarium’, a glass atrium filled with exotic perfumed plants. There is a café in the grounds offering lunches, snacks and, in the summer, tea on the terrace. There is also a shop and plants sales area. Check the website to see what special events are being held, such as talks, musical concerts and performances of Shakespeare.
