Fodor's Expert Review Alnwick Garden

Alnwick Garden Fodor's Choice

A marvelous flight of fancy, Alnwick Garden celebrated its 20-year anniversary at the turn of this decade and remains one of the area's most beautiful, unusual, and kid-friendly attractions. Alongside traditional features like perfectly manicured lawns, shaded woodland walks, and a charming rose garden are more unusual elements like the enormous Grand Cascade water feature, a Poison Garden with everything from hemlock to cannabis, and a labyrinth of towering bamboo. The grounds are also home to the largest "Tai-haku" cherry orchard in the world, as well as a recently spruced up shop and a number of excellent dining and drinking options, including one of the area's most unique restaurants, the Treehouse. You can buy clippings of the unique varieties of roses in the shop.
