The Sage Wealth Management Grand Cascade

The breath-taking centrepiece of The Garden

The centrepiece of The Alnwick Garden is The Sage Wealth Management Grand Cascade, a magnificent tumbling mass of water, ending in an eruption of fountains. One of the first features to open in The Garden in 2001 it is one of the largest water features of its kind, with 21 weirs, 120 water jets, 250,000 gallons of water, 323 meters of weirs and fountains reaching up to 6m tall.

The Sage Wealth Management Grand Cascade is kindly sponsored by financial planning specialists, Sage Wealth Management. Committed to helping families create a more sustainable future at each stage of life, the Sage Wealth Management sponsorship helps deliver significant investment into The Alnwick Garden Trust – our charity which supports social inclusion, improves wellbeing and supports the most vulnerable members of the community across the North East.

The Pump Room houses the computer system which synchronises the sensational displays, that offer not only a visual treat but more interactive enjoyment too for younger visitors who can play amongst the water jets. Want to see how it works? Behind The Scenes Pump Room Tours run daily.

Recycled and reused water

250,000 gallons of water are stored underground at any given time, and are filtered and recycled. The water is re-circulated up and down a vertical drop of 10 metres.

Sparkle Lighting

Sparkle lighting was installed around The Sage Wealth Management Grand Cascade and opened to the public by The Duchess of Northumberland in April 2013.
