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

Very Impressive and a good tour included


MarpleTraveller, Manchester
We went to the Gardens have not enjoyed our visit to the Castle. What a difference. We were clearly told what our ticket would allow us to do. Immediately offered a time slot for the Poison Garden and a map which was very clear. The water cascade which greets you is impressive with different fountains working at different times. The walks around it are with in arbors or where you stand a chance of being splashed but all part of the fun. The poison garden is escorted but well worth visiting, the guides are knowledgable and some of the plants there are surprising. The cherry orchard with its adult swings is also very pleasant to wander through. The formal Gardens at the top of the cascade are lovely with a wide range of plants and flowers. In all a very good place to spend a couple of hours.

I had forgotten how fabulous this garden is


julieclarke60, Durham, United Kingdom
It's a few years since we last visited Alnwick gardens and I had forgotten how beautiful it is. They have improved and added things since we last visited. The atrium/conservatory is very impressive and spotlessly clean. The water features area is so cleverly designed and educational and I loved the bamboo maze. The numerous swings in the wooded area were lovely for people of all ages and the poison garden is well worth booking a tour. You can have a break and walk into the town centre and then come back and explore some more. Children can ride on tractors and play around the main water feature and run around and have fun.

Beware the poison garden 🕸🕷🕸


Sharon C, Middlesbrough, United Kingdom
Absolutely brilliant visit....so pleased that someone has finally taken note of the american way....constant maintenance and cleanliness....and it works🌻🌻 the food hall and outdoor eating facilities were immaculate....the only 'thing' creating a mess was a blackbird who insisted on digging in the planter!!!😛 We paid a visit to the poison garden and had a guided tour which was very informative and enjoyable...did'nt realise i had so many poisonous plants in my garden!!😲 Overall a most enjoyable experience; and the site benefits from good management. Our only disapointment was that we were a bit early for a lot of the flowers e.g. roses; so it was not as colourful as it will be soon 🌷🌼🌹......never mind it will be a good excuse to visit again!! 🍻
