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

Wonderful place to visit and enjoy.


pamw398, Portsmouth, United Kingdom
6 of us visited the gardens and were delighted by what we saw .The plan we were given was very useful as 1 of our group is wheelchair bound and there were some routes she could not access.However it didn’t spoil the visit to any great extent. Capability Brown had a hand in redesigning the gardens and they are beautifully kept.An impressive water display is the focus when you walk into the garden and there is a Poison Garden which is very interesting where a guide takes you round giving an amusing account of poisonous aspects of plants which you can find in any normal garden. The gardens themselves are beautiful and there are many places where you sit and enjoy your surroundings. The disappointment for us was the cafe in the gardens.The choice was limited although there was a stall where pizzas were made to order.The tea was a tea bag put in a mug and you had to put your own milk in and not particularly hot .It was all self service and didn’t really reflect favourably with the rest of the garden experience.

Beautiful garden in Northumberland


LeeCary, Gravesend, United Kingdom
We were lucky enough to visit this beautiful garden on a lovely sunny day. Lots to see, lovely cascade, roses, bamboo maze, poison garden and a nice cafe. We didn't have a full meal, but the coffee was good and there were nice cakes. It is licensed and serves wine and beer as well as soft drinks. Don;t miss the tree house and the rope bridges (only two but good fun). Very interesting modern basins in the toilets.

Interesting additions. Part of the 2 for 1 Gardeners' World scheme.


dj_vhughes, Wakefield, United Kingdom
We have been here before but were in the area so thought we'd visit again, given that it's part of the Gardeners' World Card Scheme. We loved the new cherry tree garden. They are underplanted with alium and looked spectacular, even though they weren't in blossom. Lots of winding paths with adult swings to enjoy. What a treat!!

Poor quality food in Pavilion cafe


Angela M, alnwick
I love the garden and am lucky to live nearby I recently took a friend using my “best friend” ticket We both were so disappointed with the quality of the hot food on offer in the pavilion cafe The choice was between colourless macaroni cheese and insipid looking belly pork Not only were the ingredients really cheap to buy we were charged a ridiculous price I won’t be back

Best mature garden visit !


lutzkg,
The first time I visit the Alnwick castle garden was in 2003 and it was not established at the time and bare in places . This week I went back again, and what a transformation ! All has matured and a special highlight was the maze made out of bamboo. This was the best maze visited so far and not to forget the superb cascading fountain with its display every half an hour. Another place looking at it in the grounds is the poisoned garden which is guided by a member of staff. But the garden as a whole is really brilliant. The only little bit disappointing were the prices in the cafe, a average cup of tea sets you back £ 2.00 and is a bit heavy going for a normal consumer , and so is the food , too! Still this place is very worth visiting.
