Events in Swansea: parks & gardens

Clyne in Bloom

Location: Clyne gardens - show a couple of minutes by car along the sea front from our b&b

1st to 31st May

Clyne in Bloom is celebrated every year during May when the award winning rhododendrons and azaleas of Clyne Gardens are in full bloom and at their most magnificent. As a plant lover this is one place I always reccommend. But it is also good for all the family as there is space to play, trees to climb, a brook to play pooh sticks and ducklings on the pond.

British Bird of Prey Centre

The British Bird of Prey Centre is a specialist collection of British raptors, focusing on the welfare and conservation of our native species of birds of prey.

 

The new centre is based in the National Botanic Garden of Wales, so you can visit us during your day in the Garden.

 

Our aim is to give everyone the opportunity to interact with and learn about the birds of prey that can be found here in the UK and, in doing so, inspire communities to ensure their longevity.
