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

After the castle. .....


DavieD46, London, United Kingdom
One of the best gardens I've visited. It's more the design than the flowers. It's architecturally interesting in the same way as the great Roman gardens. The Poison Garden tour is very interesting. I never realised there were so many alternatives to divorce. The Grand Cascade is great and the Ornamental Garden is designed in a way that I have never seen before. A must see attraction.

Beautiful


Leigh H, Brough, United Kingdom
If you like water displays, this is the place for you. Lots to see and the gardens are immaculate. Our visit was a little early in the season for most of the flowers but despite this, the Orchard blossom and tulips were lovely. The grounds are much larger than they first appear, as you walk up past the main waterfall to access the oriental gardens at the top with a lot more to see at either side. The garden is a real sun trap and you can spend a very pleasant few hours wandering around, whilst pausing for tea and cake.

Fun gardens


Lucy F,
The gardens were amazingly designed and the fountain was a thrill to watch. On my vistit I was surprised to find some swings amongst the beautiful blossom trees which added to the experience.

Amazing water features - book a slot to see the poisonous garden - interesting


Veronica D,
This wasn't a planned visit but so pleased we went. Approx £12pp - we didn't have time to visit the nearby castle so just paid for the gardens. Amazing water features, and great to see children enjoying the effects of water - even playing in little tipper trucks. Beautiful, relaxing gardens to walk around - the effect is relaxing and beautiful. Our visit was April so the tulips and other flowers are just about to give up, but was still so worth the visit. We booked to visit the 'Poisonous Garden' - crikey!!! that was an educational!!

A Grand Day Out


620SueC, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
We just got back from our trip to the Alnwick gardens and must say it was brill! My hubby recently broke a leg and is currently not allowed to put any weight on that leg at all so is using crutches for short distances and a wheelchair to go further (but not faster!). He contacted the garden and reserved a disability scooter, which is FREE and no deposit either - astonishing. He was given a very clear handover about its use and off we went, simple. The gardens were beautiful, lovely spring flowers, cherry blossom past its best but still lovely, they are really extensive and paradise for gardeners/painters/photographers and I dare say birdwatchers too. The water features are very unusual and fascinating to watch. The pleasure was added to by the fact that the sun shone and we missed the occasional heavy rain showers - couldn't recommend it more really.
