Owner description: The Alnwick Garden is one of the world’s most extraordinary contemporary gardens. From poisonous plants and treetop walkways to glorious roses and towering delphiniums, the Duchess of Northumberland’s vision for a forgotten plot is now a truly 21st century experience full of imagination and fun, all brought to life with water.

“Fantastic food & service in afternoon tea tent 10/10 for food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

I brought my two daughters to the alnwick gardens and then decided to visit the afternoon tea tent. Would definitely recommend it as we all loved it, staff couldn't have been more helpful. The food was fresh and filling and the unlimited tea & coffee topped our delightful day off.

“A great day out for all the family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013 via mobile

We have had a wonderful day and enjoyed fabulous foody treats including a delicious afternoon tea. All the food offerings have the wow factor and are a huge improvement since my last visit a couple of years ago. Everyone going should make time for an afternoon tea during their visit

“Gorgeous garden, lovely day out.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

We had a family trip to Alnwick Gardens and Castle and easily spent all day there. The grounds are so beautiful - especially the rose gardens.

The poison garden tour is well worth doing too, staff are very enthusiastic and knowledgable.
It is quite a pricey day out however the reception staff are very helpful at working out the cheapest entry rate they can get you!

Well recommended for a fun outdoor day.

“BIT EXPENSIVE BUT A GOOD WAY TO SPEND HALF A DAY”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

The cascade is very impressive and the other water features are good fun. The walled garden and rose garden had matured nicely since our last visit in 2007. Entry is not cheap unless you are a RHS member! It's not a day out as they claim but a nice way to spend half of one. Coffee was moderate but sitting on the terrace with it was good.
