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

Improves as the plants mature


rogerrobert98, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
The first 'new to us' feature was the giant having a bath in the lake! the Hornbeam covered ways are almost completely grown over and the bamboo maze is dark inside. It has genrally been a good year for roses but their display meant that we left wit samples from the Garden,s shop. They have discontinue the free return for a year ticket [Alnwick Castle still do this] which makes the entrance seem a bit more pricey.

Simply Beautiful


Jennifer259, Llanelli, United Kingdom
The reputation of these Gardens was our main reason for us to visit this area. We were not disappointed. This is a very contempory garden in many respects. The weather was glorious and everything was in full bloom. Everything about the garden reeks of attention to detail. You can enjoy this place even if you are not into gardening. The water features in the Serpent Garden and the Grand Cascade were particularly attractive. Our visit to the Poison Garden was very educational and informative. The guide in the Poison Garden was very knowledgeable. The catering facilities are second to none and prices are about right.

A tad expensive


ZinamonKveen, Colombo, Sri Lanka
Was a bit more expensive than expected. The gardens are lovely though. There are lots of different areas/fixtures to see. There are plenty of benches in most parts to sit and relax. Enjoyed the poison garden tour, the cherry orchard with its swing seats and the water installations.

Alnwick Gardens!


Sue00do, North West England, United Kingdom
We just visited the gardens this time, beautiful and well maintained. Highlights - amazing bamboo labyrinth, stunning water features, intriguing Poison Garden, rose garden, long covered archways. Negatives, expensive for the size, limited access depending on what you pay for, £3 parking on top of entrance fee, incredibly busy, glass covered shop unbearably hot and bright, impossible to spend much time in there. Glad we've been but for us once is enough!
