Located within the walls of the old Glynllifon estate - the residence of the Newborough family for centuries - the park boasts magnificent gardens, of real historic and scientific importance. In fact, Glynllifon has been designated Historical Garden (grade 1) status as well as a site of Special Scientific Interest by CADW and the Countryside Council for Wales.
A visit to Glynllifon will let you shake off the cobwebs and relax in some of the most alluring natural habitats in the country. Idle the hours away in some of our old follies or stroll through the forest floor amidst some very rare plants and fauna. How many places in Wales can you read your book under the shade of a giant redwood tree?
There's also some fantastic modern sculpture to absorb in your travels through the tranquil haunts of the park. Alternatively - for people wanting a challenge - there is an orienteering course - as well as a treasure hunt that's sure to keep the kids entertained. A guide service for groups is also available.
The Welsh arts gallery has a varied and dynamic programme of art works always on show, principally, by talented Glynllifon-based artists.
Much of this Welsh craft work is on display in the shop front. If you want to carry your own unique piece of Glynllifon home, you can even commission a work directly from one of the craft workers.
Finally - you can rest your weary legs in the Black Cat Café, where a variety of light meals and refreshments are available.
