The Alnwick GardenSeptember 14 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☁️ 16 °C
The site was derelict 10 years ago, but the Alnwick Garden today is one of the world’s most ambitious new gardens; its construction was the vision of The Duchess of Northumberland as a public garden for families to enjoy.
We see the Grand Cascade, have a guided tour of the Poison Garden (for obvious reasons, you must be accompanied) and wander through the Cherry Orchard up to the magnificent Ornamental Garden. On the way back down, we wander through the Rose Garden, go through the dark maze that is the Bamboo Labyrinth and see the excellent water sculptures in the Serpent Garden. The features in the Roots and Shoots Garden are the result of collaborations with local schools and the NHS. On the way out, we pass The Trehouse; this is the largest wooden treehouse in the world: and built around 16 mature lime trees, which grow through and into the building, and is a restaurant with rooms linked by rope bridges (it is closed at present).
The Alnwick Garden is a thoroughly recommended visit!Read more
