Well that was worth the visit it is absolutely splendid. We were glad to find there was no age limit to the zip wire though I left the testing of that to my daughter.
On our way to the walled garden we spotted a school party exploring the straw maze and having a grand old time. We followed them in and found another throne for another photo shoot opportunity. Happy days.
Next to my favourite part of the garden the Double Walled Garden As a keen vegetable grower I tend to veer to the right and compare progress. The hazel arch with sweat peas is beautiful and walking through rounded off a thoroughly gorgeous morning. A visit to the Gardens always brings such pleasure and a little escapism, so during the 5 minute drive back to Pen Y Garn Cottage we planned our next visit. There is so much to see and do one morning was nowhere near enough.
I don’t need much of an excuse to visit the National Botanic Garden of Wales and having the throne from Game of Thrones is more than a bit of an excuse. Marching up the Broadwalk we tried to distinguish who were the ‘#Thronies’ but as nobody was at that stage dressed up it was difficult to tell.
I was ridiculously excited to enter the Great Glasshouse and catch the first sight of the throne. There was a fantastic atmosphere in the queue to throne and photograph and we were also delighted to find the Gardens had organised a ‘dressing up box’, to get the full experience #westeroscymru Well done Garden of Wales, handled really well.
After the excitement of the photo shoot we enjoyed a very nice coffee in the glasshouse topping it off with a quick photo next to the Tardis for a quick getaway as there was a rumour that winter is coming.
Leaving the glasshouse very happy we made for the walled gardens and remembered that we had not yet visited the newly installed Adventure Zone
