Seven glorious gardens are being uncovered, restored and invigorated.
Feel free to wander and explore their rich seams of history, poetry, landscape and Victorian grandeur. Walk through an ancient cloister garden, watch as an historic hidden terrace garden and a walled kitchen garden are returning to their former glory, hug a champion tree, swing over a stream, enjoy a wildflower meadow and feel the vibes where Dylan Thomas found youthful inspiration.
The ‘One Historic Garden’ project links heritage, gardens and opportunities across South and West Wales. The aim of the project is to establish a ‘Centre of Excellence’ through seven existing gardens attractions across the region, each site being enhanced through capital improvements ranging from redevelopment of the gardens to visitor centre upgrades in order to provide better quality facilities and enrich the visitor experience.
With a total investment in the region of £4.5 million, work on One Historic Garden commenced in 2010 and all improvement activities are scheduled to be completed during 2014. The scheme is part-funded by the EU’s Convergence European Regional Development Fund through Visit Wales and the Welsh Government.
One Historic Garden forms part of the wider Visit Wales’ Environment for Growth (E4G) Sustainable and Coastal Tourism programmes which are supporting a variety of other development schemes throughout Wales. These will provide exciting new and improved activities and facilities for all to enjoy and experience. For more information about these schemes please visit:
