The Garden’s work is determined by its dedication to the well-being of people, plants and the planet through “Conservation, Education, Inspiration” and its mission to dedicate itself to the research and conservation of biodiversity, to sustainability, lifelong learning and the enjoyment of the visitor.
The Garden opened in May 2000 as one of three iconic Millennium projects in Wales. It is the only one outside the nation’s capital, occupying historic parkland (Middleton Hall) covering 560 acres and incorporating a National Nature Reserve and organic farm, as well as being a showcase for some of the world’s most endangered plants.
It was the first national botanic garden of the new Millennium and, in 17 years, has received more than 2.5 million visitors. It embodies the old and new, with 18th century features set alongside the futuristic, single-span Great Glasshouse designed by Lord Norman Foster. This is now an international landmark for Wales.
The Garden is situated 10 minutes from the M4 and 2 minutes from the A48 in Carmarthenshire, mid way between Cross Hands and Carmarthen.
