We have been visiting the NE - Alnwick area, for 16 years and 'discovered' Howick on one of our first visits. The gardens - especially at this time of year - are super. There are many variations for walking to suit how far you want to go and even when the car park seems busy and you may feel that... More

We enjoyed a lovely walk here using the map as a guide. We enjoyed see all the different plants as well as some wildlife including a deer. We had tea in the tea room which was very good too. It would be lovely to see more of the house but I understand why this isn't possible.

We have passed Howick Hall many times in the past and never visited. We went there with friends on their recommendation and loved it! Despite our visit being during the Easter holidays and there being several cars in the car park, we hardly passed anyone on our walk. The east arboretum leads through some stunning and unspoilt walkways and as... More

We have managed to see the snowdrops about every 2 years since we moved here 4 years ago. This year was excellent - the paths have been improved so much less muddy - and, due to the very mild winter here this year, there were lots of plants out early to add to the snowdrops - fritillaries (sorry if spelling...

Mature, beautiful and tranquil gardens and extensive arboretum for the expert gardener or simply those who appreciate natural beauty. The tearoom, at the home of Earl Grey tea, is traditional and of high standard with prompt and friendly service

Beautiful grounds full of snowdrops and crocuses. Couldn't walk round to see more because it was too cold and rather wet underfoot. Drank Earl Grey tea in the tearoom under the picture of the 2nd Earl of Grey! The Visitor's Information room is excellent,with really interesting and well-researched information.
