From poisonous plants and treetop walkways to glorious roses and towering delphiniums, the Duchess of Northumberland’s vision for a forgotten plot is now a truly 21st century experience full of imagination and fun, all brought to life with water.

What an interesting place!!! Lots of nooks and crannies hiding things like water features, all of which keep the kids interested. Beautiful flowers and plants most of which are named so you can take any inspiration home. We ate at Dishy Fishy on the way out, the food was really really good and very reasonably priced too...£4 for a small... More

Worth popping in if it's on some sort of freebie, with some interesting info on its development, otherwise be aware it's a honey pot for his grace, but with some pleasant areas that many people like. Walks in Hulne Park are free.

Amazed at the design and standard of these gardens, well worth visiting at any time of the year.Visiting in March you may think there is not much to see - wrong!! Laid out in a fantastic design with colour and amazing hard landscaping. This is one of the best thought out gardens we have ever seen. The contribution to the... More

Not one for visiting gardens I joined my elderly parents on this visit before lunch at the treehouse. I was stunned by the beauty of the place and the variety of area to view. Not having time to go into every zone I chose the Bamboo Labrynth and the aqua area then a walk through the arches up to the... More

Some may baulk at the on the door £7.70 adults price but I'm sure if you tried you could find an offer. We paid full price and were not disappointed. The tour of the poisonous garden was a particular highlight, so much so my husband is already talking of a return visit. Our guide was full of information taking us... More

A great place to visit, very nice water features and the tour of the poison garden is really interesting and should not be missed. Look out for discount coupons in some the tourist brochures.

My wife and I were seriously impressed by the Garden's despite so little being in leaf or bloom as yet. I can only imagine what it would be like in early May or late April when the fresh leaves and cherry blossom are on the trees. It was a 270 mile round trip for us and I'd definitely like to... More

Great family day out, plenty of space to run around and explore. Loved the water features and beautiful gardens. Poisonous plant tour is fab! Very morbid but interesting 😁 Kids and adults are always excited with the treehouse shaky bridges going from one tree to the next. Nice friendly staff and lovely fish and chip shop on site serving large... More
