Very nice walk at the peak of spring. Most of the apple blossom had fallen but had a calming walk around leading to the top garden. Very good wheel chair access and tidy. Gardeners answered any question's. Poison garden was extremely interesting and the scale of the fountain took me by surprise as this was my first visit.

The gardens are fantastic. Obviously not as colourful as earlier in the year but still beautiful. We did the guided tour of the Poison Garden which was excellent - informative and funny and also had a cream tea in the cafe which was delicious. Well worth the fee.

Fantastic garden where accessibility is well catered for. Ample disabled parking, and all paths are wheelchair/scooter friendly. The walk through the cherry trees is very clever, especially with all the swings- can only imagine how pretty that is when in full blossom. The only bit that’s not fully accessible by wheelchair is the steps up and round the fountain, can get so far as there are ramps to get you to the middle section where you can see the water jumping over the oath. Bamboo maze was fun and very clever. Lots of benches so you can sit and admire the surroundings. Food was lovely. Really enjoyable day out.

There must have been a promotional article about this place when it opened as I've wanted to go here for years and years. Did not disappoint. The lovely tour guide let me have a super quick tour of it despite me being a little after the last official time. I really appreciated it. Fascinating plants and stories, and super important to educate kids about plants too. The Alnwick gardens as a whole were also really unusually fun in their layout and imagination, and beautiful. Worth the cost. Nice shop and plants for sale too, and the mini golf looks awesome.

One of the best places you can visit in the country let alone the world. First day was cancelled due to high winds, we are talking enough to knock you over. Duty manager said we can come back the next and it was a real pleasure to finally explore the Alnwick gardens in piece and at my own pace. They was a lot more I hadn’t really thought of and each section was just as wonderful as the last section. I highly recommend it for anyone to come and visit at least once
