Don’t waste your time drove for an hour for a half filled tent. Also had to pay £3.50 for parking. This event should not be advised as a market but as just a few Christmas stalls. Literally took 5 minuets to walk around. Massive disappointment.

We visited the Gardens as family members on the day of Hallowe’en and were very disappointed and not the least scared ! There was very little to see or do and the children were bored stiff instead of scared stiff !! The entertainment consisted of...More

Visited specially to see the ‘There, but not there’ Tommy silhouettes, which were striking. Still a lot to see although it almost is winter - the gorgeous autumn-coloured leaves, late flowering roses, the bamboo maze, walled garden, and the fabulous water cascade along with other...More

Had a lovely day strolling around Alnwick Gardens. Excellent designs and set up for children, beautiful gardens, informative tours. Well done to those who manage and run this place. Highly recommend!

We have been a couple of times before and they are certainly planted for summer displays rather than Autumn. Entry fee a bit expensive given lack of flowers on display. Other areas still good, the water sculptures and bamboo maze, and of course the fountains....More

We have often commented that the Alnwick 'Garden' would be better named if the title suggested that it was as much about commercialising events such as Halloween and Christmas. I'm sure that for children and families the transformation of the garden into a Halloween adventure...More

I’ve wanted to visit the gardens for many years. We visited today & we were so disappointed. There’s no way that the full summer entry price is justifiable at this time of year. I’m sure at the height of summer the gardens are spectacular but...More

If you have young children then I would recommend separate trips to garden and castle. It’s a huge place to visit with so much to do. We were there all day and still didn’t get an opportunity to see it all.
