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

Mid winter and still enjoyed


Stoneleigh, uk
These gardens are wonderful. Very few plants at this time of year but interesting visit to poison garden. Cascade in full exciting operation and water features lovely. I love the gate as you approach the entrance, the effort they put into looking after children, older people and lonely local people is to be commended. Go to to the treehouse to eat and the woodland walk

Lovely surprise


Abi N,
We went to Alnwick Gardens on New Year's Day, our last day in Alnwick. We were pleasantly surprised because it's winter and we didn't expect much. Even though the flowers and plants are not in bloom, we enjoyed the walk. Around the gardens and the water features, with their scientific explanations. We loved the labyrinth and the tour of the poison garden. Ok, the cafe choices for a vegetarian are not great but you get used to that traveling. Would recommend it, especially if you don't mind going at time when plants not in bloom.

A nice surprise


Stephs11_11, Bishop Auckland, United Kingdom
We visited Alnwick gardens as a last minute decision on New Years Eve, having never been before. We were pleasantly surprised as what a lovely place it was for a stroll around the gardens - despite it being winter. I'm sure it must be 10 times better in the summer too once all the plants are in bloom. There's a good choice of food/snacks and toilets are clean. We went ice skating. Yes it's synthetic ice, but our little boy had a lovely time. We wandered over to the tree house which looks amazing. Next time we will definitely be eating here as there was a lovely smell coming from the restaurant. We will definitely be back.

A beautiful Wedding


David R, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
It was my son's wedding yesterday at the Alnwick Garden. I would like to thank everyone involved. The venue and the organisation were exceptional, highly recommended for anyone looking for a venue. The day exceeded everyone's expectations, we all stayed at the Hog's Head nearby, and buses connected it all together. They turn on the lights after dark with a spectacular view of the terraces, we even had a man made snowstorm!

Spectacular setting


omwatt, Glasgow, United Kingdom
Even in December the gardens are interesting. We hope to make a return visit in early summer to see the gardens at their most colourful
