Our Visit in Alnwick Garden, England

Be inspired by the most exciting contemporary garden developed in the last century, The Alnwick Garden. The inspiration of the Duchess of Northumberland, this fascinating garden features the Grand Cascade as its centrepiece to create spellbinding water displays. The pergola-covered paths of the rose garden combine shrub and climbing roses with clematis and honeysuckle, and the Ornamental Garden features the best of European garden design and planting. In the Serpent Garden, eight water sculptures nestle in the coils of a topiary serpent, while the Poison Garden holds dangerous plants and their stories. The garden is also home to the Bamboo Labyrinth and one of the world's largest tree houses, with rope bridges, walkways in the sky and a fantastic place to eat. The new pavilion and visitor centre house has places to eat, shop, learn and relax.


On the 8th of March, we had a 40 minute travel from Whitley bay to Alnwick castle (where the famous Harry Potter castle named Hogwarts was set) but apparently, we didnít know that it was closed until the 20th of MarchL. So, we ended up in Alnwick gardens instead and it was a great sight! The gardens were pretty although the remains of the winter season was still in view, we can picture out how beautiful and breath-taking it will be when spring and summer will dominate soon. We immediately took some nice photos from the place but unfortunately, we didnít have much time to wander about and we can also see that rain was about to pour out soon. We were just able to get a few good photos and decided to come back over the summer, where it will all be in full blossoms! :) Hope you like them :)
