You're probably aware of the award-winning Alnwick Gardens, a wonderland created by the Duchess of Northumberland that has become one of the country's fastest-growing tourist attractions.
Everyone from the serious horticulturalist to curious teenagers will find something in The Alnwick Garden. There's a poison garden full of dangerous plants and one of the largest treehouses in Europe.
And there's also Howick Gardens & Arboretum - recently recognised by the BBC Gardener's World Magazine as one of the top five coastal gardens in the country and once home to Earl Grey, the great British Prime Minister who gave his name to the famous blend of Earl Grey Tea.
There is also the fantastic Belsay Hall, Castle and Gardens, a true original with a rock garden inspired by the quarry gardens of Sicily, whilst fans of the most famous of British landscape gardeners, 'Capability' Brown can enjoy the lake inspired by his original plan at his birthplace - Kirkharle.
