Overview

The Alnwick Garden is one of the world’s most extraordinary contemporary gardens. 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.

This review relates just to the NYE family event, not the gardens generally which are brilliant. The event was a real disappointment - “skating” on a plastic rink, being reluctantly let onto the mini golf course (“you should have got here earlier”) and other entertainment...More

We spent a good few hours of New Year's day walking round the Gardens. Sun was shining but it was cold, still a lovely day for a walk though. The grand cascade was lovely to see, there were lots of families making use of the...More

Lovely place to come in season, Nice shop and café if a little expensive and chaotic at times. Beautiful in the evenings with the lighting and the tree house is something to behold.

The waterfall is spectacular and well worth a visits. But the garden in my opinion is best visited in summer. Even though there were events during Christmas.

What an absolute let down, never had something so oversold to me before! With the strap line “celebrate NY in style with some old fashioned family fun”....... Arriving for the opening time at 5pm the place was like a ghost town with no atmosphere. Overpriced...More

Bought tickets for our family, consisting of five adults and two small children one aged 4, for this event. Very disappointing, no entertainment as stated, unless you count a dull Olaf (dressed up member of staff), as street entertainment. Not value for money total cost...More

Had a great time with family, beautiful grounds, lots of activities and fun stuff going on (baby vegetables anyone?). Not too big so can be comfortably walked round in an afternoon, might be stretching it a bit to get a full day out of it....More
