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

Not very pushchair friendly


Kelly A,
We went to Alnwick gardens with our 4.5 month old. The gardens itself are beautiful and we'll maintained. From photos they look impressive when all lit up. We had a good day there and there are lots of different sections to look at. We found the ticket prices to be slightly overpriced. Our main criticism is that it's not very pushchair friendly. Whilst all parts of the garden are accessible with a pushchair we kept walking to places that ended in stairs and having to backtrack to find the accessible paths. It would be good to have some signs around to direct wheelchair/pushchair users. Also found the baby changing facilities I was directed to by staff to be inadequate due to it just being a changing table in the female toilets which ment I had to change little one go back to my husband with baby and then back to the toilet for myself. Other then that it's a nice little day out

Fantastic gardens.


Joe C,
This is a must see if you are in Alnwick, the gardens are truly lovely and are very large. The rose garden is great with all the different roses named and smells fantastic on a wet day. You get a free tour of the poison garden, which only lasts 20 mins but is very interesting. Wether it's the pond, rose garden, ornamental garden, cherry orchard etc, there's lots to see and a very mellow way to spend some lovely down time.

Beautiful


KirstyEkua, Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Alnwick Garden is a lovely place to walk around and get lost in! The gardens are centered around an impressive water fountain, with water cascading down and occasionally shooting up in the air! The flowers at the top are gorgeous. There's a tree house cafe which looked really nice (we didn't eat there but had a walk around it) and a bigger cafe serving snacks and lunches. As well as the gardens, there's a forest walk, poison garden tour and for an additional cost you can visit the famous Alnwick Castle. Great stop on a sunny day!

A different type of garden


AnthonyTelford, Telford
The garden is centred around the waterfall which cascades down the hillside it is built on. Every now and then the fountains and spray jets put on a show which is great to watch. Around the garden are smaller water features and gardens and a bit further away is the tree house complex. There is a very good general restaurant which provides indoor, covered and outside seating. Very enjoyable and different from the usual formal garden type layout.
