The Alnwick Garden


The Alnwick Garden is one of the most exciting contemporary gardens on earth. A garden for gardeners with a design that looks to the future. It's a stunning attraction and a floral wonderland. But this isn't just an attraction for keen horticulturalists. The Alnwick Garden prides itself on being a place for families with lots of chances to get wet and play. You can collect water in the mini tractors, paddle in the rills, see the many ways water can move in the Serpent Garden and dodge the Grand Cascade’s jets.

You can see acres of fascinating plants, water sculptures and the infamous Poison Garden. The landscape is eclectic, from the gentle waves of colour and scent in the Rose Garden to the riotous, spellbinding water displays of the centrepiece the Grand Cascade.
The pergola-covered paths of the rose garden combine shrub and climbing roses with clematis and honeysuckle, and the Ornamental Garden features the best of European garden design and planting.

In the Serpent Garden, eight water sculptures nestle in the coils of a topiary serpent, while the Poison Garden holds dangerous plants and their stories.
The garden is also home to the Bamboo Labyrinth and one of the world's largest tree houses, with rope bridges (walkways in the sky) and a fantastic place to eat. The new pavilion and visitor centre house has places to eat, shop, learn and relax, as well as regular creative performances and tours, hands-on workshops, fabulous local food and inspirational gifts from Northumberland.

The Alnwick Garden is open every day from 10am-7pm in Summer, Winter opening hours vary please check the Alnwick Garden website for full details.
