The Alnwick Garden is a Garden for everyone. The vision of The Duchess of Northumberland, The Alnwick Garden is a multi-award-winning visitor attraction based north of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne in Alnwick, Northumberland.

Explore 12 acres of meandering and magnificent Gardens which are home to the worlds largest Tai Haku Cherry Orchard (approximately 329 trees which bloom in late-April to May each year), a Grand Cascade comprising 120 water jets and the world's largest Treehouse Restaurant.

Everyone is welcome to explore the stunning grounds of The Alnwick Garden as it changes with the seasons, creating a different experience with every visit.

It is a great day out in Northumberland for families where children can run freely throughout The Garden playing on mini diggers and interacting with many of the daily activities.

The Alnwick Garden is also a peaceful and tranquil haven to spend hour after hour wandering amongst the Roses, the Ornamental Garden and the Cherry Blossom or just kicking back to take it all in one of their impressive 50 swinging benches.

In the Serpent Garden, eight water sculptures nestle in the coils of a topiary serpent, while the infamous Poison Garden holds dangerous plants and their toxic 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 Pavilion and visitor centre house 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.

If you are looking for a unique dining experience, why not dine at The Alnwick Gardens magnificent Treehouse Restaurant? Or for a lighter bite, visit the Potting Shed, The Bakery by John Searcy or The Pavilion Cafe with catering provided by the world-renowned Searcys of London.
