Fun and exciting days out in Wales
Much of the house was rebuilt in the 1690’s and followed by the 1874 remodel, designed by renowned architect, William Eden Nesfield, who also worked at Kew Gardens and Kinmel Hall. Nesfield commissioned his father, William Andrew to lay out the gardens, which have been lovingly tended to ever since.
Guided tours of Bodrhyddan allow visitors to explore the Dean’s Dining Room, White Drawing Room and more, offering a fascinating insight into the family. Our collection includes historical artwork, antique furniture and an impressive collection of arms and armour and most incredibly of all, Bodrhyddan is home to a 3,000-year-old Egyptian mummy and sarcophagus.
Something for everyone in Bodrhyddan's gardens
The gardens cover around 12 acres and include a formal parterre, cascading lawns and a Japanese walk of life. The rugged wilds of the woodland walk’s were recently made accessible to visitors. The garden is home to a number of native trees and others from further afield, including giant sequoia, cedar of Lebanon and an Indian bean tree. The quiet calm comes to life with the dozens of species of animals and birds, making Bodrhyddan a wonderful setting for nature lovers.
Enjoy refreshments in the tea room or garden
All this culture can be thirsty work. Our Tea Room offers a selection of hot and cold drinks and ream cakes, providing you with the perfect excuse to indulge. We also have a number of postcards, guide books and other souvenirs available for purchase as well as audio guides of the gardens, narrated by Lord Langford and Head Gardener, Jane.
Opening and Admission
Bodrhyddan Hall welcomes visitors on Tuesdays and Thursdays (between 14:00-17:00) from June to September when the gardens are fully in bloom. We invite you to see our grounds and enjoy a peaceful woodland walk.
Bodrhyddan will happily open outside of these times for groups of 25+, making the Hall an ideal stop for coach parties travelling to Llandudno and Conwy.
We are pleased to offer guided tours throughout the Hall with our passionate guides. The tour lasts approximately 90 minutes and showcases artwork, furniture, arms and armour and our resident mummy. Horkhebis has called Bodrhyddan home since the 1830’s, having returned from Egypt during the honeymoon tour of Charlotte and Richard.
