My grandma used to visit these gardens when she came to Llandudno, so it was good to see them for the first time. Lovely terraces and lots of plants which will look great in summer. Quite tropical for a December weekend!

Often overlooked or even unknown by many visitors, this little gem is worth a visit especially in early summer when it boasts a splendid Laburnum arch that rivals the famous one at Bodnant. Rockeries and follies and a replica stone circle make this a lovely little place and is well recommended.

The gardens are very steep and hilly but offer stunning views of the coastline and a trek is advised as well.

We visited here as part of the alice in wonderland trail. Beautiful even in the rain. Good views, well kept gardens and sculptures to see. Big grass area for children to access. Public toilets well maintained and cafe near by for refreshments, will return on a sunnier day.
