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

Stunning gardens


2allane, Nottingham, United Kingdom
Amazed at the design and standard of these gardens, well worth visiting at any time of the year.Visiting in March you may think there is not much to see - wrong!! Laid out in a fantastic design with colour and amazing hard landscaping. This is one of the best thought out gardens we have ever seen. The contribution to the community is marvellous with lots of events and feature programs.

Calming atmosphere


jrbrown1257, Northampton, United Kingdom
Not one for visiting gardens I joined my elderly parents on this visit before lunch at the treehouse. I was stunned by the beauty of the place and the variety of area to view. Not having time to go into every zone I chose the Bamboo Labrynth and the aqua area then a walk through the arches up to the top of the waterfall steps. I just wish I had longer to visit the poison area and the rose garden. It was a lovely relaxing way to begin the day. As you walk in through the entrance the magnificent vista of the waterfall hits you straight in the eye. A must see for anyone visiting the area. The cafe serves good food. Although we did not eat there it looked very appealing. Children are catered for in the main area with pedal diggers with which they can fill with water and transfer to another area. Great place to visit.

Interesting even when it's not in bloom


Gilliwoods, Aintree, United Kingdom
Some may baulk at the on the door £7.70 adults price but I'm sure if you tried you could find an offer. We paid full price and were not disappointed. The tour of the poisonous garden was a particular highlight, so much so my husband is already talking of a return visit. Our guide was full of information taking us around some of their samples providing both information and some of the horror stories. I'd certainly suggest that visitors book in for one of the scheduled tours. Those of a less morbid persuasion will still be able to enjoy the water features. These are not simply a visual treat but also interactive.

VERY DIFFERENT

A great place to visit, very nice water features and the tour of the poison garden is really interesting and should not be missed. Look out for discount coupons in some the tourist brochures.
