Alnwick garden is certainly spectacular - well, its water feature anyway - but I would not recommend it to anyone seeking the peace and beauty of garden. "Nice for the kiddies" is a phrase that springs to mind as every effort is made to keep...More

We have been friends of the garden for many years but due to the abysmal new catering company we are not renewing our membership. The new caters offer top market prices for low market catering. There is very little choice and small portions of hot...More

We enjoyed our visit to the garden today. However we were very dissapointed when we entered the cafe. At 2 pm very little left. Staff looked unhappy, dirty dishes everywhere. We ended up paying £8.50 for two cans of fizzy drink and one finger of...More

We visited Alnwick Gardens last weekend and were very disappointed. Firstly the admission fee of £10.50 for concessions to the garden was too high considering we had already paid £3 to use the car park. This made a total outlay of £24 for 2 pensioners...More

Gardens are really worth a visit. We went in early April and though not everything was in bloom it was still very pretty. We did the poison garden tour and the guide made it very interesting. Definitely worth a visit.

Have been visiting the garden for many years from the days of a marquee cafe tent to today’s dinosaur show and all in between. Getting food for lunch has always been stressful but the new catering is awful. No menus a small unimpressive pizza for...More

The only reason I haven’t given this 5/5 is the entrance cost. Bit steep at £13 per adult. Gardens were very nice and in summer will be spectacular. The Poison Garden was especially interesting. Would recommend a visit

We didn't but it appears from the answer already given that you can see the castle from the gardens.
