Georgian pleasure grounds surround the towering castle, with woods and parkland rich in wildlife and offering views of Snowdonia, the Menai Strait and Great Orme. The large walled garden is set on terraces with formal flower beds, topiary, a fuchsia arch and pond with bubbling fountain. In the jungle-like bog garden, the giant gunnera is a real showstopper.
At Penrhyn Castle & Garden, near Bangor, daffodils provide a charming contrast to the imposing stone facade. Despite the spectacular views of the Menai Strait, it’s the daffodils that steal the show as they jostle for attention in the spring breeze.
