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

May 2017

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.

Saturday/Sunday 20th & 21st January

Food fair

National Botanic Gardens, Carmarthenshire - 30mins drive from our Bed and breakfast

 

There’ll be a mouth-watering array of food and drink from West Wales producers in Lord Foster’s Great Glasshouse on Saturday and Sunday, January 20-21.

 

Event organiser David Hardy said: “There’s no better way to cheer up the very long, grey month of January than a food fair. And this will be a very tasty affair with lots to choose from – like very special sausages, the perfect tonic of a range of flavoured gins, meat, vegan food, vegetarian options and gluten free, too.

 

“Whether you have a thing for fudge, bacon baps, tapas, charcuterie or liqueurs, this is the place to be next weekend.”

 

Garden admission is just £4. The gates open at 10am and close again at 4.30pm (last entry 3.30pm). There’s no additional charge for the Food Fair and there is plenty of free parking for everyone.
