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!!!


UnicornGT,
It was a gorgeous sunny day, perfect for enjoying the vast stroll around the gardens. There was everything from ornamental to roses and then of course the poison garden tour!! Plan on doing lots of walking and just taking in the gorgeous array of botany. A must see!!

Go early if you can - Fantastic gardens - Treehouse is amazing


Claire L,
Go early- opens at 10am. We managed to park in the town for free and the garden is close by. Book The Poison Garden visit straight away - information on poisonous plants, not Harry Potter magic! Water fountains great. Maze is quite dark. Cafe and toilets good. Combine the. Isit with the castle and is a full day out.

Good not great!


kaynyc21, Sydney, Australia
Good points: Beautiful gardens Water area is great for kids Free tour of the poison garden Not so good points: Car park is £3 Food options were limited & very overpriced (£7 for a jacket pot & beans!) Staff (in restaurant & tree house cafe) looked miserable and were rude to us - twice! It was a 'nice' place to visit but would I go again. .... no.

Amazing gardens - Poison garden worth a visit


Cheshirecat100, Warrington, United Kingdom
I love these gardens as there is alot going on. The best thing is the Poison Garden - amazing place. The cascade is very impressive and the Italianesque garden at the top is also lovely. We also liked the bamboo maze. We have visited before when we did the tree house, didnt get chance this time but it is worth going round. This time we included the Forgotten Garden Golf which I think is new this year - top effort - as a family, we visit crazy golf courses a lot and I have to say this one was one of our favourites and most memorable because of the giant insects, worms and spider. Really well designed, attractive and thought through although some of the noises coming from the speakers as you go round are a bit random. The cafe is lovely and sells good coffee and the shop sells lovely local watercolour paintings and cards. Will definitely go back if we are in the area again.
