Lots to see and lots to experience, a good day out! The Poison Garden is a fascinating area, and there's a decent cafe as well.

My husband booked an overnight stay for us as a surprize trip away for me, and before booking didn’t check if the castle was open too - it wasn’t haha. Ended up going around the gardens anyway which we thought for the price of entry,...More

Had a fab day at Alnwick garden. My 2 year old loved the fountain! The food is very good and you get lots! The toilets are spotless and the baby change is the best I've seen bar none. Loved it

It’s a lovely place to wander round and it must be fabulous in summer. It’s a good wander round and the facilities are excellent and the restaurant also very good with hearty meals for winter. A fun place for kids with small diggers to play...More

A comfortable walk around but the planting seems to be all straight lines. Some interesting flowers.

Always a great place to visit and a magnet for tourists in the area just like the castle. We called in this time for the lantern parade starting in the Garden & going through the Town

If you have young children then I would recommend separate trips to garden and castle. It’s a huge place to visit with so much to do. We were there all day and still didn’t get an opportunity to see it all.
