Overview

The Alnwick Garden is one of the world’s most ambitious new gardens. The Duchess of Northumberland’s vision for a forgotten plot is now a truly 21st century experience full of imagination, inspiration and fun. Designed by Jacques and Peter Wirtz, The Garden is a wonderful combination of spaces, themes, quirkiness and play.

From the tranquility of the Cherry Orchard, the excitement of the Grand Cascade and the mysteries of the Bamboo Labyrinth, to the Serpent Garden’s spell-binding water sculptures, the intrigue of the Poison Garden and one of the world’s largest tree houses – there is plenty to surprise and delight.

The Garden is a space designed to be enjoyed by all your senses, with a collection of over 4,000 plant varieties to discover, thousands of seasonal blooms and countless opportunities to get wet and play in The Garden’s water sculptures

Day out


Judith B, Newton Aycliffe, United Kingdom
If going to Alnwick this is a must visit place . Stunning place , surrounded by fields and trees . The gardens themselves were stunning , The place was dressed up for Halloween, things in trees , ghosts everywhere, so much work had been done . We went to the famous tree house , fabulous , called in the cafe , sandwiches were quite expensive , more so if you are buying for family , would recommend you take some with you . Every worker was helpful and really pleasant . Well worth a trip .

Whistlestop visit but worth it!


Fred B, PENRYN
We only had a day and had already visited Lindisfarne and Bamburgh Castle so confined our visit to the garden although we would have also visited the castle if time permitted. In October the garden displays and features were surprisingly attractive with many blooms still showing brightly. Pareticularly welcomed the informal tour of the "Poison Garden" which was closed but reopened briefly by the lady in charge just for us. We would recommend a visit to this very different garden which was in some ways a highlight of the all to brief visit.

Something for everyone

You can't fail to be impressed by the Grand Cascade simply spectacular. There are various water features, a maze and the Poison Garden, prepare to hear chilling stories from your guide around the historic use of poisonous plants, oh and don't forgot​ the truly amazing tree house, book a table in advance to avoid disappointment.

Amazing


hvine,
Alnwick Gardens are included with the Castle. I did both. They are not dog friendly. So maybe dog day boarding would be a good idea. They are great fun for children of all ages. I've reviewed in detail on my Alnwick Castle review. Enjoy.

Simply delightful


Paul F,
An excellent example of a well planned and preserved garden, which has much to offer. Despite the time of year we visited, there was still much to enjoy and despite allowing an entire day to do this and the castle, there was still more to see, but no doubt we'll return at a later date.
