The beautiful National Botanic Garden of Wales, near Llanarthne in Camarthenshire, has been hailed a great success by visitors from far and near who have enjoyed all that the 568-acre parkland has to offer, its historic and futuristic buildings, its horticultural displays and flower meadows, its lakes and walks, its shops and cafes.rnrnThe Garden's centrepiece is the Great Glasshouse designed by world-famous architects Norman Foster and Partners Inside the amazing tilted glass dome is a Mediterranean landscape dominated by a six-metre deep ravine. Rock terraces and sheer faces are cut by streams and waterfalls. A lake provides a humid habitat at the foot of the chasm. Visitors are able to experience the aftermath of an Australian bush fire, pause in a Spanish olive grove or wander through collections of fuschias from Chile.

There's something for everyone at the Garden of Wales, from the peaceful surroundings of the Japanese Garden, its stream, tea house and cherry trees to the surround-sound experience of Theatre Botanica with its specially commissioned film celebrating the world of plants.
There are lakeside walks and prairie walks, an opportunity to see the development of the unique Double Walled Garden and be some of the first to see the shoots that will become the Woods of the World in years to come.
Award-winning water sculptures link the past with the present, bringing 1790s garden and lake design side by side with contemporary art design.
The National Botanic Garden of Wales is set in the former Regency estate of Sir Wiliam Paxton. The landscape was desiged by Samuel Lapidge, a pupil of 'Capability' Brown.
