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

A Winter Garden


Amy W,
2 adults and 2 children bored on Valentine’s Day got in the car and went to Alnwick Gardens. We pre bought tickets on line meaning we got some discount. Tickets are discounted already on the website as well taking in to account that it’s winter and some plants aren’t in bloom. We loved walking around and seeing the wonder. It was bitterly cold and snowing, so didn’t stay as long as we wanted. We did check out the cafe and gift shop which stocked Alnwick Sloe Gin - definitely try this!! All in all a lovely day and we would go back. Please remember if you visit in winter, it will be a winter garden. If you are expecting bushy plants and lots of flowers, wait till spring/summer!

Nice even under a winter day


PW03, Canberra, Australia
On a February day when the castle is closed this is a nice place to wander about and take in the day. The treehouse is great although I was a bit unsure of the suspended sections but it all worked out in the end. There is a couple of places where you can see the castle from the gardens, such a pity it was closed.

Lovely Gardens

Visited in February and still lovely to see. Bit surprised that the cost of entering wasn't reduced at this time of year though.

Very Disappointing In Winter


Ellé G,
I can imagine that the Gardens look absolutely beautiful in summer but it is a complete waste of money during the colder months. The Gardens were lifeless, there were no plants or evergreens planted and it was very bare. The odd bit of equipment that is there to use for entertainment did not work. The gift shop that is supposed to sell the plants in the garden hardly had any in. And to make the experience even worse, every bit we visited had builders/landscapers in making it very noisy and ruining the overall experience. Of course I understand that they have to do work on the gardens and that things such as cherry blossom trees would not be about. But I did expect seen as the gardens had been closed and it was the first day open to he peaceful with no landscapers and to have evergreens and winter plants around. If they knew that the gardens do not have a wide variety of evergreens and that the garden looked lifeless the prices should have been reduced.

Let down by cold food


F00dman, Northumberland
Love Alnwick Garden. We went on cold winter Sunday. The carvery had a choice of Topside of Beef and Loin of Pork. With Roast potatoes, Roast Parsnip, Carrots, Cauliflower cheese, green beans broccoli and Yorkshire pudding. When we got to the till I asked if they could heat my dinner in the microwave: The nice waitress took it away and said "The Gentleman likes his dinner really really really hot" the dinner was very tasty but at best Luke warm. The. Problem would be solved if food was probed with a temperature probe. This was 12-15 beginning of lunch. Or a better microwave..Psychological love the garden
