The Grow into Work programme will be supporting unemployed people in North Northumberland to move closer to or into work.

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
