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

Good inspiration

This garden provides a lovely walk with lots of interest. The landscaping and use of trees & shrubs is great. I have brought home lots of ideas! The trip round the poison garden felt a little rushed. We loved the water features.

Wow it was amazing but shame we couldn't go to Tree House due to wedding. It suit for all ages and the best thing was the water flowing down and love the swing. We would go again in the summer so we can see all the flowers and tree growning.

Excellent all round

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit, even though the garden wasn't in bloom yet. Loved the water features in the serpent garden and the grand cascade. We did the Poison Garden tour which was very informative. Loved the cafe area with the sunny terrace.
