Eat, Drink & Shop

Enjoy a taste of The Alnwick Garden with a great variety of food and drink; or visit our gift shop and plant centre to take the magic home with you...


Whether it's a bite to eat in the Pavilion Café with a view of the magnificent Grand Cascade, Fish and Chips in the Dishy Fishy Chip Shop, coffee and cake at The Potting Shed or a decadent banquet in The Treehouse Restaurant - a meal at The Alnwick Garden is sure to be one to remember.


Situated at the main entrance of The Garden, the Gift Shop has an array of gift ideas to suit all pockets. The carefully selected range of products has been sourced from crafts people and manufacturers from within the UK and around the world.

As well as our own branded souvenirs, we stock a fabulous range of locally produced beers, fine foods, gifts, artwork and photography. Wherever possible we try to support local producers and artists.

The shop also stocks essentials such as batteries, sun cream, sun glasses, as well as umbrellas and emergency ponchos.

The Gift Shop transforms in winter into a wonderland at Christmas full of novelties. It becomes home to our fantastic indoor Christmas market, hosting up to 100 local artisans and merchants every weekend on the run up to Christmas.


Visit our Plant Centre to take a piece of The Garden away with you. We stock a large variety of perennials, alpines, shrubs, climbers and roses from our own as well as other specialist nurseries. Many varieties we sell can be found or are propagated from plants found within The Garden by the garden team.

We stock over 100 varieties of scented David Austin Roses including our own famous Alnwick Rose, named after the Garden. For something very different you can buy plants from Chelsea Gold Medal Award winning nursery Kevock Garden Plants. They specialise in rare plants from around the world and always provide us with something exciting and new!

Advice can be sought from one of our Alnwick Garden Gardeners who are often around. They can answer your gardening queries or recommend a plant for that problem spot. The Plant Centre is open seven days a week during the summer and no garden ticket is necessary to visit it.

Our own nursery specialises in plants from The Garden. Here we propagate these plants by seed or cutting throughout the year using our own mixed low peat compost. The plants are grown sustainably with a low environmental impact and are usually bee and butterfly friendly. We ensure the highest quality plants are grown and sold here meaning you really can take a little bit of The Garden away with you!


If you have any queries please send them to one of our horticulturists
