A 50 acre public garden owned by the Swansea City Council. Note the tower, built by Admiral Algernon Vivian, the last private owner of the gardens, to view his rhododendrons. The plants now tower over the tower! A lake and waterfall feed into a bog garden, and the area supports a wide variety of damp-loving plants. Best viewed in: Spring.
An exquisite Edwardian garden covering 65 acres surrounds the stately Victorian mansion of Dyffryn House. The Grade-I listed gardens are laid out in a series of cosy garden rooms mixed with more formal lawns and a large arboretum featuring trees from across the globe including several 'champion' trees. Within the gardens are a lily pond, Roman garden, swimming pool garden, round garden, Japanese garden, vine walk, an arboretum, and cactus collection.
