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

Beautiful features


theharrogatelady, Harrogate, United Kingdom
We didn’t visit all the garden but we saw lots as we were dining in the treehouse restaurant. The ornate gates with the bird call playing was lovely. We also loved the very popular cascade fountain and the beautiful trees beside it.

Take out a second mortgage


MatSpratt, Buckinghamshire. UK
Went with friends who had never been before. Having been years ago when it was in infancy it seemed like a lovely idea at the time. Now, sadly it has become a mini Disneyland with so much “stuff” going on. The beautiful fountain display with a plastic giant, mass entertainment when the water tractors were quite enough for small children. The prices in the cafeteria were extortionate we only had 4 coffees and a roll each. In fact most of the prices are huge. I know it has been a massive attraction for Alnwick which has hopefully helped all in the area but I just feel it has become a huge commercial theme park now.

Spring is on the way!


ABCDMAX, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
After Xmas and New Year celebrations and a bout of this years “flu” it was great to visit the Zgsrdens which reopened after its winter refresh. Visited on a bright sunny day and walked the gardens trimmed ready for Spring - lots happening on the hospitality front with a Searcys taking over the restaurant and a Treehouse - lots of activity refreshing the facilities ready for a full opening in March Look forward to all the activities this year and hidirs with the grandchildren - always s treat in the holidays

If you’re going to the castle anyway make use of the opportunity to see this also.


DonnaWashington,
If you’re going to the castle anyway make use of the opportunity to see this also. I’m probably going to say a bunch of things they don’t really want you to say: signage to the castle/garden I found not ideal so let me give you the skinny. Parking in town is near impossible as you need a special parking disc so go ahead and use the parking they want you to use and there really is no negative to this as the walk is very reasonable so don’t worry about it and yes the parking to the garden and castle is the same thing. It’s a shame for both you and local businesses they miss out on potential business. I admit it, I was heading to the castle and this was not on my hit list but as I was there anyway I figured I may as well tick this box also and was glad I did. It’s a bit of a cornucopia. Walking to the ticketing office you pass by the giant in the lake which is a fun gimmick and the treehouse. The garden is a mix between kids water park and majestical zen areas and serene red brick paths covered by a green foliage canopy. The central water feature: "The Grand Cascade" is very impressive and please take note it’s not a one trick pony as it has a whole repertoire of shows it delivers. The day I went was the height of summer full of families yet there were still plenty of tranquil areas. I was glad I added it to my visit.

Interesting Gardens


DawnPower, Canvey Island, United Kingdom
Alnwick gardens have a beautiful rose garden and the poisonous plant tour was very good. The waterfall feature is excellent and it made for a good day out.
