A Garden For All

If you are unable to book a slot on your preferred date or the time, please do not be disheartened as we are attempting to allocate access to The Garden fairly for all visitors. We feel that we would not be true to our core values as a community charity if we did not offer everyone the chance to experience The Garden during this time. Please also remember that booking slots are non transferable or refundable, so think carefully before choosing the date and time of your visit.

PLEASE NOTE: You can access The Garden as soon as your booking is complete however depending on your email provider it can take up to 24hrs to receive your booking confirmation email. Some confirmation emails may fall into spam folders, please check before you visit.

Thank you again for your understanding during this time. To book your visit slots, please click the link below:

If you are driving to The Alnwick Garden, please be considerate of those around you whilst parking, leaving or returning to your vehicle.

Paying for parking will be via contactless card payment only, and you are able to park anywhere other than the first tier which is reserved for Blue Badge holders only.

Please follow the one-way routes where applicable. If you need to double back, please do so at the earliest juncture instead of turning around as this compromises the safety of other visitors.

The Gift Shop and Plant Centre will only be accepting card payments.

Unfortunately, at this time access to The Treehouse will remain closed.

Within The Garden you are free to move around at your leisure, however, the onus is on you to ensure that you and your family exercise the 2 metre rule.

We have hand sanitiser available across the site. Please feel free to use this as and when you deem necessary.

Our Pavilion Kitchen and Bakery are open.
Masks must be worn inside our Gift Shop, Pavilion Kitchen (unless seated) and The Bakery.
We will be allowing picnics on site. If you have any litter please make sure you dispose of it responsibly or take it home with you. Littering puts both visitors and staff at risk.

At this time our children’s tractors will be unavailable. We will be using this as an opportunity to send them off for an MOT and a full valet so they’re all set for next season!

For the safety of all our guests, only assistance dogs are allowed into The Garden. We also strongly advise that you do not bring your pet on hot days as we cannot guarantee parking will be available in suitable shaded areas. ‘Happy Hounds’, located in close proximity to The Garden, offer a day care boarding service to Garden visitors for a small fee, booking is essential: 01665 572425
