Bodnant Gardens - Terraces

Introduction

Five grand terraces constructed in the early-20th century descend westwards from the house with magnificent views towards Snowdonia. The terraces feature a trellis work pergola, an ornamental canal with the Pin Mill at one end of it, a baroque fountain and two specimen cedars planted in the late-19th century. The planting, which thrives in the shelter provided by the terraces, is exceptionally rich and contains many climbers, shrubs and roses.
