Particularly spectacular gardens with notable collections of rhododendrons, azalea, magnolias and camellias.  They cover 7 acres and sweep down to the Conwy.

The gardens look down on the River Conwy below, and in the distance there are stunning views over Snowdonia.

The 2nd Lord Aberconway created the gardens around a hundredyears ago. Features include a wooded valley, stream and wild garden on the lower level, and overlooking them is the large Italianate terraces and formal lawns on its upper level.

Of particular note, blooming in May, is a 40 yard laburnum arch which gives a long   tunnel of golden blooms. In autumn the traditional autumn colours are much in evidence

Open 14 March to 31 Oct: daily 10--5. Last admission 4.30
