The Alnwick Garden is one of the world’s most extraordinary contemporary gardens. From poisonous plants and treetop walkways to glorious roses and towering delphiniums, the Duchess of Northumberland’s vision for a forgotten plot is now a truly 21st century experience full of imagination and fun, all brought to life with water.

Amazing magical walks through gardens with a surprise around every corner. Book into the tree house restaurant several weeks in advance!

We visited Alnwick Gardens following recommendations, and were disappointed to find a £3 parking fee. The price into the gardens was also disappointing when we found, as several previous reviewers have mentioned, not many actual plants. Admittedly the water features were stunning, and the cherry...More
