Having seen a TV programme about the development of this garden many years ago we wanted to visit. Not disappointed as it has been meticulously planned and executed. In another 25 years it will have matured some more and be even better,

Although we were disappointed that both the treehouse restaurant and the poison garden (some of the major reasons for coming to Alnwick) were fully booked, we did enjoy the gardens which were extensive and immaculate. We visited in May and there was plenty to see....More

The amount of hard work taken to keep these gardens in such an immaculate state must be staggering. There was not a blade of grass out of place, not a weed to be seen anywhere. An absolute credit to the whole team involved. A stunning...More

The Alnwick gardens are Day only, whereas you can ask for the castle tickets to be extended to a yr free of charge at the time of purchase. We found the staff super helpful and friendly, so don't hesitate to ask for help if... More
Does Alnwick garden allow re-admission? We are staying in the town, have tickets booked and intend to go in the morning; family also have tickets for the same day but can't make it until the afternoon. We would like to come out for lunch in our holiday cottage and go back in with the family in the afternoon.
