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

Great day out


Dr-Oot-and-Aboot, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
Always a great place to spend a day, or just an hour or two, wandering the gardens. I am a Friend of the garden, which is very reasonably priced and lets me visit as many times as I want in a year (with other perks too). It is great to watch the garden change throughout the seasons - from the roses in full bloom, to the cherry orchard, to the autumn colours. Nice little café too.

How to Make a Garden interesting

Lots to see and lots to experience, a good day out! The Poison Garden is a fascinating area, and there's a decent cafe as well.

Best in Spring?


LillyHx, Manchester, United Kingdom
My husband booked an overnight stay for us as a surprize trip away for me, and before booking didn’t check if the castle was open too - it wasn’t haha. Ended up going around the gardens anyway which we thought for the price of entry, would have been a LOT bigger. We had the most fun in the Poison Garden, great knowledge by tour guide John and surprizing to hear some of our garden plants could kill us! I think coming back during Spring/Summer would be best as obviously nothing was in flower and everything was brown and dreary.
