To break up a long drive from Aberdeen to Newcastle, we decided to stop off at Alnwick Gardens. How disappointed we were!
After paying the reduced price of 6 pounds 50 each for seniors, we walked the walled garden and rose garden in the rain and they were OK, but nothing special. We waited for an hour and a half for the and water jets. All we got were 2 displays lasting 15 seconds, half an hour apart, of 4 spouting jets - nothing special at all.
We were most disappointed. After asking why the display was so uninteresting, we were told that this was the computerised sequence set for that day.
In our opinion it was a waste of time and money.
