The Alnwick Garden gives pleasure in so many ways to so many people from all walks of life. It has become a contemporary pleasure garden, which brings joy to millions. When I see photographs of it in darkness I feel that I am watching it sleep, resting in preparation for the people it has to entertain the following day. To me a garden without people is dead, and people have brought The Alnwick Garden to life and restored its soul.
