The Orangery Gardens at Margam Country Park

Margam Park is a Grade I listed garden and landscape, where you are surrounded by beautiful trees, shrubs and flowers, classic and modern planting, lakes and long vistas which have evolved since medieval times.

When the Authority acquired the Park in 1973, much of the building and surrounding gardens were derelict and over the years much work has been done. The Orangery, now refurbished, augments the eclectic collection of buildings on the estate. The Orangery gardens contain many interesting trees and shrubs including several large Tulip Trees, a Cork Oak and a very large cut-leaved Beech.

The Broadwalk Steps are flanked by glorious rhododendron, introduced to the park by Frank Kindon-Ward and nearby you will come across the intriguing Bamboo Collection and a Japanese Garden.
