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

Worth a visit


NewClose123, Newcastle
Good visit, made in conjunction with a trip to the Castle. £120 for 4 adults and a teenager for both seemed reasonable as we arrived not long after 10.00am and left at 5.00pm (with an extra £18 and near enough an hour on the mini golf). Poison garden was interesting, Paddy definitely a credit to the gardens. Walled garden must be stunning in the summer when it’s in bloom. Maze and water feature’s impressive. Disappointed the tree house was closed for a private event. Good trip.

Stunning Garden


graham297, Essex, United Kingdom
The gardens are really stunning with many interesting water features and the cherry orchard. We had a very good morning walking round and an excellent lunch in the garden cafe. Well worth a visit but leave sufficient time to see everything.. Will need a full day if you go to the castle as well.

Fabulous

Not to be missed and very inspirational. As a concession this was the best £12 I have spent in a long time.

A very special garden


leetip, Dunblane, United Kingdom
The garden beat all expectations. The first view of the water cascades is amazing. Everything about the garden is perfect. Not a gardener to be seen...you wonder when all the work must take place.The water sculptures are incredible and the party of school children were having a whale of a time getting completely soaked. The Poison Garden is an interesting idea. Personally I would have preferred a serious tour rather than a comedy turn. I would have liked to have heard about more of the plants.

Stunning contemporary water gardens


kavep212018, Louth, United Kingdom
A beautifully laid out garden. Lovely pavilion sitting area with a view of the water cascade. Many different styles of planting laid out in separate areas - water gardens, bamboo maze, herbaceous plants and shrubs in the ornamental garden, a rose garden. The cherry orchard with swings for two was lovely even without the blossom which must look stunning in the spring time. The tree house is quite something to see, and offers a cafe and restaurant. Plenty to enjoy there. Parking nearby is reasonably priced at £3 for the day. Having bought the tickets for the garden, you can come and go for the day. From the garden it is a short walk to Alnwick town, which you can visit and then come back to the garden, so there is no need to repark if you want to do both. A very good day out. Highly recommended.
