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

Extremely beautiful gardens


GregoryB, Stoke-on-Trent, United Kingdom
It was the most perfect day weather wise and the gardens were so beautiful. The poison garden was very interesting and the bamboo maze was stunning. The formal gardens, water features and small quirky lake makes you appreciate how much thought and hard work goes on at Alwnick.

Better than expected


LordGrimthorpe, Toronto, Canada
Beautiful contrived gardens. Lots to see even in October. The highlight for us was the garden featuring the poison plants. There was a guide who explained the properties of each of the plants. Our guide also took us around the main garden including all the different fountains.

Wonderful place


Louise W, Preston, United Kingdom
This place is wonderful. It is quite pricey for just a gardens but it is a magical day out for all the family. From playing in the water fountains to swinging on the wooden seats on the orchard...it is packed full of fun. We especially enjoyed listening to the story teller who was magical and the tour round the Poison Garden was interesting too.

Great garden even out of season


Nicky G,
Fabulous. We went out of season so did not get the full effect from the gardens but eve so it was impressive. Loved the tour of the poison garden. Apart from that it's great for kids. So many places to explore and something new around each corner. Definitely pre-buy your tickets online if you can. It will save you a few pounds.

Mobbed by Young Children - Time of Year you Go is Important.


J H H, McLean, Virginia
There's an interesting "poison garden" - that you may visit a limited bit of under the careful eye of a guide, a fun bamboo maze, an impressive dancing water fountain cascade, and a lovely garden at the top of the hill.... but most of this space seems devoted to eating, and selling plants and merchandise and although that's nice, it is not the most fabulous garden in England - by far. Too many children storming all over the place. In rose season - there's a nice walk though and don't miss the custom wrought iron gates.
