Gardens

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.

Flowers from the Margam Country Park Gardens

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.

A recent injection of funds has meant that within the Orangery Gardens it has been possible to reinstate the orchard area and rebuild the pergola. There is much new planting ranging over the whole site from the formal gardens around the Castle to the knot style planting and re-established monastic gardens in the Abbey area.

The Gardens at Margam are ready for a new stage in their evolution and plans for the future will be carefully thought through to make Margam an exciting place to be, over time becoming one of the most interesting gardens in the South Wales.
