We visited here two years ago and absolutely loved it. I wanted to go back again this year. Was a little disappointed this time- especially as it is so expensive to get in - even for seniors. The cherry orchard and path up were looking...More

I have wanted to see these gardens for a long time and I can assure you I wasn’t disappointed. We got our tickets from a lovely young lady with a lovely smile. She explained the garden and what time all activities started. The gardens were...More

Feeling ripped off and very disappointed at paying £12 each to visit here yesterday. I know the weather has been unusually hot and dry, but there is no hosepipe ban yet! The majority of the flowers have already wilted and turned into dead messes where...More

We kind of stumbled into this trip and had we known in advance of the significant entry costs involved then we might have adopted a different strategy. Like arriving early to maximise time in the garden. As it was we arrived at 11.30am and were...More

My visit to Alnwick Gardens was, once again, beautiful. I visited on an extremely hot day and so it was lovely to see all the flowers in full bloom, however a few changes could be made to make our visit far more enjoyable. The fountain...More

Visited the Garden whilst on holiday. Enjoyed the Plants for Sale section which you visit before the actual garden, so no ticket purchase involved. Did the Poison Garden Tour which was fantastic, learnt a lot. The water features were amazing and thoroughly enjoyed the ornamental...More

We visited mid week thinking it would be quiet however we were surprised to see how many people were visiting. The gardens were fabulous. Lots of colour and lots of interesting objects to see. Will definitely be back with our grandkids.

Gardens are stunning, especially enjoyed the poison garden and delphiniums. For the weekend ones there's the giant's lost items to find throughout the garden. While you're there, also go see the castle. Two fees, not cheap, but worth it!

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.
