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

Over priced


Taryn D,
At £13.00 each plus £3 parking we felt the visit was over priced and over hyped. The cherry blossoms and swings were impressive, but on a cold day in April when most plants hadn't blossomed, flowered or come to leaf, there wasn't much to see. Disappointing really

Family visit four adults and four children

Pre Easter treat for our family, this has to be a venue for your bucket list , one of the best places to enjoy with your friends and family, we hoped to see the cherry blossoms but we where just two days early but they are still very beautiful, the attractions for children are numerous with the fountains and poison gardens to see, the restaurants and the wonky bridge at the wooden house is a must visit.

Visited with my adult children ,as a birthday treat .


BM W,
I love Alnwick garden . It is my absolute favourite place to be . Unfortunately the Pavilion restaurant has gone downhill since my last visit . We waited from 12 til 12 15 for someone to serve at a counter,which we assumed wrongly was a selection of hot meats .. It was only chicken . The choice was half or quarter . It came with potato roasted/smashed and you could select from various salads . It was all very dry and uninteresting . We then waited 20 mins to pay for the food ,in queue of people wanting drinks, cakes and sandwiches . They did eventually open another till , but its card machine was not working ,so had to go back to original till . The food was tasteless ,bland and very dry,and cold when we eventually got to eat it . For £12 95 i expected much better food . Wish we had gone to treehouse ,where we have always had a good experience .

Don't miss the tree house


nick w, Sheffield, United Kingdom
If you are visiting the castle you should also see the gardens. Check out local magazines at the tourist office for discount vouchers for here and the castle or just get a combined ticket. The water features are fascinating. Visit the tree house restaurant before they start serving lunch. That way you can look around. It is expensive and probably booked up anyway but worth a look round. I

Poison Garden, Alnwick Garden


Jo R,
This is really interesting! You pay to go into the garden, and then there are guided tours for the poison garden. My only gripe is that the tour is too short! There are many plants that most people would recognise, but not necessarily think of as dangerous. I visited in mid April and would guess that the tour varies according to season. You spend about 20 minutes on the tour, but you can spend all day in the gardens
