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

Lovely day out!


Charlotte W,
We have an annual pass for the Gardens so works out great value for money! We love watching the Grand Cascade and look out for the visiting entertainment- which does sometimes get extremely busy. My son loves the small tractors (take spare clothes / waterproofs) as small children can get wet whilst collecting water / and in the different water fountains! We usually take in a packed lunch with us and enjoy letting the kids run around! This years addition of the swings are lovely and staff are wonderful!

Winter break


Borogirl01, Middlesbrough, United Kingdom
We visited the garden on a crisp winters da, It was lovely to walk around & admire the water features & grounds. It was a bit disappointing as we visited midweek that there were no events on, these seem to take place on a weekend in the winter which is understandable. We had a nice cup of hot chocolate which warmed us up in the tea rooms, the food looked good but we did not eat there. We also had a poison garden tour which we found really interesting.

Beautiful


Rembug22, Leeds, United Kingdom
Really stunning gardens, I could have spent hours just wondering around. They even have potion gardens for the Harry Potter fans! Really worth a visit!

Alnwick garden Xmas market


Limaw, Cramlington, United Kingdom
Don’t waste your time going especially for the Xmas market as it is absolute rubbish. The garden itself is good as usual although rather bare at this time of the year. The Xmas tree at the top of the cascade is rather pathetic and the Xmas trail for children is rather boring as they just have to count various Xmas items. I am sure such a big concern could have put on a better market, we certainly will not be going for the Xmas market in future.

Really rather tacky water-animated garden- kind of poor person's Disney


DrLIndsay, New South Wales, Australia
Having seen many water-animated gardens in different places around the globe I turned up here with high hopes. Sadly, for garden lovers, this place is a poor person's Disney without the flair. If you like simple-minded cultural references, clumpy water features and large crowds on a fine day this is definitely the place for you. Anyway if it keeps folk happy and involves them in gentle enjoyment who are we to criticise? One man's meat and so forth. But, if you go to Italy, do yourself a favour: visit Villa Lante and Villa Caprarola near Viterbo- to see exquisite beauty and the highest level of water-animated garden art with amazing cultural depth inside the Caprarola Palazzo. Or take the family to see Bomarzo's incredible sculptures also near Viterbo. The C 16 Italians did it so much better than the C 20 Northumbrians. Or go to Salzburg and visit the late C 16/early C17 water garden at their Schloss/ Hellbrun Palace. Breathtaking and far wittier.
