We have been on holiday in the area several times and have never before visited Howick Hall and Gardens. Such a shame. However today we rectified this and had a very lovely time. Bearing in mind we have a toddler and trying to enjoy yourself can sometimes be stressful! We begin our visit by going into the tea room and... More

My lunch was delicious and HOT leek and potato soup and half a baguette (egg and cress);my husband had a cheese and ham toastie which came as a sandwich- since he loved the pickle in it we didn't complain about the wrong 'delivery'; a genuine mistake and we were charged for a sandwich not the extra for a toastie.

I visited Howick on Mothering Sunday with my parents. We were initially greeted by a friendly member of staff who was very knowledgable about the gardens, history and what's going on with the estate. We visited the tea rooms first and enjoyed a coffee and scones. The scones were a little dry but the coffee and tea was lovely! The... More

Very nice walk around the gardens. Visit was spoilt by not being able to get a cup of tea in the tea room. Advertised opening time was displayed as 4pm, we arrived at 3:20 and were told that we could not even get a cup of tea as last orders were at 3:15 pm, at the time all of the... More

We were drawn to Howick Hall because of a leaflet we picked up at Alnmouth describing the snowdrop season. We love snowdrop gardens, large and small, but this was probably the best we have ever been to. It was certainly the largest display of snowdrops we have seen. The clearly laid out snowdrop paths through the beautiful woodlands kept surprising... More

Pushchair friendly paths to see the snowdrops. Church in the grounds to go in. Impressive visitor centre with history and details of garden and arboretum. Delightful huge painting of plan of hall and gardens in about 18ins squares - about 10 feet high in total and longer in length. Other side of it shows the variety of plants in bloom.... More

We visited Howick Hall in February and fortunately the weather was kind so we walked the Snowdrop Trail which was excellent. Well marked out and at the end of the trail is a tea room which makes excellent teas and cakes!! Great place for all the family

Just returned from our first visit of the year to Howick Hall gardens. A little muddy underfoot, but the snowdrops carpeting the woodland were a magnificent sight as always. We were interested to see the "Wild Origin" garden which is new since last year and look forward to seeing it develop. Our visit was rounded off by a visit to... More

The details loked as a visit would be worthwhile, the place was generally a little tired could do with better tree management, a cheek attempting to charge extra for the "Lady garden". Cafe lacked any atmosphere in the larg room
