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

1ST. Time Visit


ian y,
The amount of hard work taken to keep these gardens in such an immaculate state must be staggering. There was not a blade of grass out of place, not a weed to be seen anywhere. An absolute credit to the whole team involved. A stunning modern take on an historic house garden. The water features are the stars but the ornamental garden at the top of the cascade is amazing. The lady guide in the poison garden was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We couldn't get into the tree house for lunch, so visited the cafe, the food was tasty, maybe a little on the expensive side. Perhaps to be expected in such a place. Well worth a visit. AMAZING.

Very disappointed visit


ivan243, London, United Kingdom
We were on a touring holiday with a major British tour operator. One of the highlights was supposed to be a visit t Alnwick Gardens but it was a major disappointment as there was absolutely no colour to be seen. OK it arounmid May 2017 but there can be colour at virtually any time of the year. We had been in the Valley Gardens in Harrogate a few days before and it was bright with lovely colourful flowers (whatever they were). All they could show us was their 'Spectacular water show and other technical aspects of how they don't waste water. If we weren't able to visit the wonderful Alnwick castle nearby the trip would have been a waste of time

Mediocre experience


Katherine N,
Food expensive. Had to ask for a glass and then offered a dirty one! State rooms were impressive but the room cards only mention the paintings on the walls. Would have liked much more explanation. Film set tour good, if bit long. Long walk from carpark too.

Beautiful place but not cheap


hmb180, Stamford, United Kingdom
The gardens are beautifully laid out. I've never seen so many roses in one place and the scent was fantastic. Fabulous centrepiece fountain and waterfall. Plenty of seating dotted around, and lots in the shade thankfully as we visited on one of the hottest days of the year. Was disappointed with the food - expensive and poor. Not everyone wants fish and chips or a stodgy bread roll. Would have liked to see a bit more variety, and better quality.

Just wonderful


Margaret D, Durham
This is one amazing place. The flowers are beautiful and so many stunning water features. The Poison Garden is fascinating and with so many new and quirky features being added all the time it just needs return visits at every season of the year. We had lunch sitting outside watching the waterfall which was just so lovely. The little tractors they provide for the kids to play at the water feature are amazing.
