About The Alnwick Gardens

The Alnwick Gardens were created from an area of derelict land adjacent to the Castle in Alnwick, Northumberland. The 12 acre site was donated by the Duke of Northumberland to a charitable trust which is administered by the Duchess. Landscaping began in 2000 and phase I, designed by the Belgian father and son team Jacques and Peter Wirtz, was developed around the Grand Cascade a water feature which flows through the whole garden. Phase II includes the Pavilion and Visitor Centre designed by architect Sir Michael Hopkins. The café facilities look like a tree house. The Gardens were opened by HRH The Prince of Wales in 2002.

The Gardens have been designed to be wheelchair friendly. There is ample parking in the off street car parks near the Castle.
