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

An excellent day out!


Peter K, Middlesbrough, United Kingdom
Having visited several times before, this was by far my favourite time at Alnwick Garden due to the fact that our two year old son had the independence to try things himself. Suitable for all ages, the garden is a must when visiting Alnwick. Simply walking through the gardens is a lovely experience, and something I imagine even my 93 year old grandad would love (aside from the walking, although all areas are wheelchair and pushchair accessible). The swing benches in the Cherry Orchard are a relaxing rest, and our little boy absolutely adored the interactive water features in the Serpent Garden (just make sure you take a towel and a change of clothes!). The tour guides in the Poison Garden deserve special mention due to their impressive knowledge (and great sense of humour too!), in addition to the staff who run the fairy tale/dress up activities. Refreshments and meals are available, and although slightly on the expensive side they are not more than you would expect to pay at such an attraction - however there is always the option to take a picnic. And finally, the main fountains are stunning. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the grass underneath just enjoying the sunshine and running around with our little boy.

Absolutely stunning


Barbara S, Charlotte, North Carolina
Many different types of gardens. My grandsons especially loved the poison garden. My granddaughter's favorite was the fairy garden. L loved them all, especially the rose garden and water gardens.

Expensive & underwhelming


j-ho_NI, Northern Ireland
£3 for parking and £12 entry I found to ve rather expensive to be honest. The main water feature is very nice indeed. Otherwise, it's not that large a garden, and what I found most frustrating of all was the number of dead-ends when you're wandering around. Perhaps I missed them, but not a huge amount of flowers to be found either!!

Lovely walk round the garden


sandraclaire, Norfolk, United Kingdom
We went first to the poison garden which was very interesting but worrying in case you came across one of the plants somewhere. We enjoyed the tree walk up high with a rope bridge and had coffee at a place here which was very good. The fountains were spectacular. A bit pricey to go here but you can get a combined ticket with the castle.
