Built on the estate of the Middleton Family and later owned by Sir William Paxton, the gearden and estate now cover some 570 acres and include features such as the world's largest single span glasshouse, a huge double walled garden, lakes and Paxton's Tower amongst many more.
The estate is about 400 years old, but the current layout (excepting the original buildings) was opened to the public in May 2000.
The garden attracts visitors from all over the world and many events are held throughout the year. See the official website for details of what's on at the Botanic Garden of Wales
