Experience the deadly thrills of The Poison Garden at The Alnwick 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.
