After the long winter months, spring is on the way and everything is starting to feel a little bit brighter. The weather is getting better, the days are longer, and flowers are bursting into bloom.
Visit The Alnwick Garden and see the spectacular floral displays, head to Howick Hall Garden & Arboretum where you’ll see cheerful daffodils carpeting the grounds from March ‘til well into May, and marvel at the beautiful rhododendrons at Belsay Hall, Castle & Gardens.
