We had a lovely visit to Alnwick Garden.
My folks caravan is in Rothbury and every time we visit we drive through and also stop in Alnwick but we've never been to the Garden.
You can park in Alnwick, spaces can be sparse due to the fact it's free or there is parking specifically for the venue which costs £3 for the day
We weren't really sure what to expect. We decided just to go to the Garden however you can also get a joint ticket to visit Alnwick Castle too. As a MASSIVE Harry Potter fan I was really tempted as the castle was used in the films for many scenes set at Hogwarts but the tickets were a little pricey (£26.25 per adult) so we decided to go to the Gardens this visit and do the castle another time.
A ticket for the garden costs £13.75 per adult (£13.06 if you buy online before you go). We used English Heritage membership cards which gave us a 20% discount so our tickets cost £11. Baby M was free although he got his own ticket which I loved.
You get a map of the garden (which we gave to Baby M and it ended up lost) but we decided to walk in an clockwise direction around the garden.
We had great views down the water feature
The garden was so much bigger than we expected and we had a wonderful day.
