Inside, you'll find a roaring log fire and thousands of tiny lights glowing from screens of fallen branches. In summer you can even see the green leaves of the living tree at its centre. There are delicious menus filled with locally-inspired food - you're always sure of a fabulous steak and desserts are decadent and served generously.

Description of Garden

The Alnwick Garden is one of the world's most ambitious new gardens. The Duchess of Northumberland's vision for a forgotten plot is now a truly 21st century experience full of imagination, inspiration and fun. Designed by Jacques and Peter Wirtz, The Garden is a wonderful combination of spaces, themes, quirkiness and play.

From the beauty of the Ornamental Garden and the excitement of the Grand Cascade, to the Serpent Garden's spell-binding water sculptures and the intrigue of the Poison Garden and one of the world's largest tree houses - there is plenty to surprise and delight.

History Of Garden

The Garden is the 7th on this site, which is set alongside the Capability Brown landscape of the grounds of Alnwick Castle. (Details of its antecedents are available on request). Designed by Wirtz International N.V., the Alnwick Garden is the first UK commission of this internationally renowned Belgian landscape garden practice.
