Explore The Alnwick Garden

Built to be unconventional, The Alnwick Garden is a unique, contemporary garden in the heart of Northumberland. Lose yourself in the mysterious Bamboo Labyrinth, explore the perils of The Poison Garden or gaze upon the Grand Cascade.

Transformed across seasons, no two days in The Garden are ever the same. The Garden’s history is still honoured through the traditional Ornamental Garden and mesmerising Rose Garden

Created by The Duchess of Northumberland in 2001, The Alnwick Garden is a garden with a purpose and is a registered charity (No.1095435) that places people at the forefront of all of its activities.

The Poison Garden

The Alnwick Garden plays host to the small but deadly Poison Garden filled exclusively with around 100 toxic, intoxicating, and narcotic plants. The boundaries of the Poison Garden are kept behind black iron gates, only open on guided tours.

Visitors are strictly prohibited from smelling, touching, or tasting any plants, although some people still occasionally faint from inhaling toxic fumes while walking in the garden.
