The Alnwick Garden, Alnwick

4.0
#1 of 40 in Parks in Northumberland
Garden Castle
Green and boasting the luxury of a typical British estate garden, The Alnwick Garden sits on a lush expanse of land in the heart of the Northumberland countryside. First established in 1750, the garden is blessed with tasteful landscaping, ornate stone works, and picturesque pathways. It now covers 17 hectares (42 acres) of land and endures as a reminder of a golden age of British architecture and design. Enter the Venetian gates of the ornamental garden and wander along pathways lined by fruit trees and lavender. Sit by the bubbling pool in the center and admire the colorful varieties of flowers surrounding you. Wrap up your visit with refreshments in the cafe, a 560 sq m (6,000 sq ft) treehouse, which is one of the largest of its kind in the world.

  • Very pleasant. Loads to do,we only had time to do some of the gardens and will have to go back to go into the castle. The staff are superb and really helpful. Brilliant day out
  • Fantastic place !! We went to the castle and loved every minute of it. We all took part in the broomstick class, which was so funny . We went back the next day, to look round the Gardens, again fantastic, worth every penny. What's also good is that the children's events inside both the Castle and Gardens are free..
  • Lovely & quiet late in the afternoon this time of year. Enjoyed swings in the orchard area. Good value on 2 4 1 Gardeners world deal & gift aid included in price too.
  • Loved walking around the gardens. And the Sunday roast was amazing and so reasonably priced! Had a great time. Especially loved the tree house.
  • Probably one of the top gardens in the north of England. Extensive mixture of plants in a varied range of settings. The poison garden is well worth a visit. Nice cafe on site.
