History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
Families will love Alnwick Gardens; there are plenty of water features and lots of opportunities for the younger generation - and their parents - to get wet.
The Serpent Garden and Grand Cascade show off the different ways water can move and change direction. There is a Bamboo Labyrinth, and the largest treehouse in the world. Year-round highlights include a profusion of spring and summer bulbs, autumn colours, and plenty of winter interest with evergreens, bamboo, and topiary.
Popular garden areas include a rose garden, ornamental garden, woodland walk, a spiral garden, and a very intriguing poison garden!
We really enjoyed the gardens, particularly the modern sculpture, used as focal points for themed garden 'rooms'.
Alnwick Gardens truly do offer a fantastic day out, but if you want more, the historic castle is just outside the gardens, and you can get a joint ticket for both places.
