Join us on a day trip to National Trust's Anglesey Abbey for their annual Dahlia Festival.


Dahlias provide a dazzling burst of late summer colour at Anglesey Abbey right up until the first frosts of autumn. Lord Fairhaven created the Dahlia Garden in 1952. It's sweeping design means that it is not possible to see the end of the border from either entrance, you just have to explore to see what comes next.


The border contains approximately seventy varieties of dahlia, with  250 plants needed to fill the garden, all of which are grown by their own team of gardeners.

The first Dahlia species arrived in Europe from Central and Southern Europe in the late 17th Century. The International Dahlia Register uses a classification system of 14 distinct groups, based on the overall shape of the flowers and petals, seven of which are grown at Anglesey Abbey, including ball, cactus, decorative and fimbriated, many with intriguing names such as Bracken Ballerina, Spartacus, Streets Ahead and Café au Lait.


In addition to the magnificent displays in the main Dahlia and Formal Gardens, throughout the Dahlia Festival there will be able a mix of traditional and creative displays across the gardens and in the house to enjoy.


  • Coach Only = £22.00

  • Entrance Included = Adult £34.50, Child (under 18 yrs) £28.50
