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

New year’s eve family event


Rob C,
This review relates just to the NYE family event, not the gardens generally which are brilliant. The event was a real disappointment - “skating” on a plastic rink, being reluctantly let onto the mini golf course (“you should have got here earlier”) and other entertainment very limited. Staff obviously more interested in knock off time. Previous years had been so much better. Such a shame because it would not be rocket science to make it a success given how amazing the grounds and facilities are.

The Alnwick Garden replied: Hi. Thank you for your comments and I'm so sorry to hear that you were disappointed. Your comments have been passed on to the relevant teams and I will ensured that they are followed up. We hope to see you in The Garden again soon!

New Years Day walk


Sheila M, Middlesbrough, United Kingdom
We spent a good few hours of New Year's day walking round the Gardens. Sun was shining but it was cold, still a lovely day for a walk though. The grand cascade was lovely to see, there were lots of families making use of the ice rink and the snow globe. We also had a coffee in the atrium café there and that was fine.

Nice Roses

Lovely place to come in season, Nice shop and café if a little expensive and chaotic at times. Beautiful in the evenings with the lighting and the tree house is something to behold.

A Magical Place to visit


Rose D,
Winter isn't the ideal time for a visit there, however,we were so impressed with the gardens.The Tree House is a lovely building- wish we could have eaten in the restaurant,what amazing decor.The best part was the Poison Garden.The guide was informative & humourous.All in all a worthwhile place to visit.Eating & drinking there is pretty expensive

No New Year Family Fun here!


freddie0, Cramlington
Whilst the write up for this New Year event appeared quite busy, when it came to the event itself it was just embarrassing. We paid almost £130 for our family to attend, of all ages. After directed to the room on arrival at 5pm, we noticed it was rather quiet, but a group of musicians were setting up. We opted to play golf for a while - which we were given torches to be able to do given that it was pitch black - and 'be careful of the rocks......' On return the musicians had gone, and that was the end of the music for the night, nothing more! The 'street entertainment' appeared to consist of one appearance of Olaf popping into the room when we first arrived. The skating was the make-do plastic plates and we couldn't get the right sized boots, with one of my children ending up with 2 left feet. We managed to get some paper cups of hot chocolate and some buns which were almost inedible. We finally used our 'vouchers' on some bags of loose sweets for the children and some cheap prosecco for the adults before leaving, completely disappointed in the whole evening. The staff appeared to not want to be there at all, and quite frankly neither did we after a while. Best thing the organisers could do is offer a refund and an apology.

The Alnwick Garden replied: Hi - thank you for your comments. I have passed them on to the team concerned, but if you would like to follow up on this then please email info@alnwickgarden.com. Once again, I'm sorry that you were disappointed
