The Gentlemen’s Garden

As part of our Elderberries Programme here at The Alnwick Garden, The Gentlemen’s Garden is a weekly session that encourages gentlemen to socialise, share traditional skills, and learn new ones, while working on their own allotment plots under the guidance of George Swordy, Senior Gardener.

Here, our front line journalist, Roving Robin, interviews George about what goes on…


As you will probably have now heard, we have entered Tier 4.

Unfortunately this means that The Alnwick Garden is now closed until further notice.

We always use January as our month for essential maintenance, so as soon as we know when we can re-open, we will let you know both here on our website and via our social media channels.


For anyone with tickets, please accept our sincere apologies. We will be working through all bookings and contacting you to organise a refund.


Here's to 2021... x
