Welcome to The Alnwick Garden. Just ten years ago, this site was derelict and forgotten. Today, The Alnwick Garden is an inspiring landscape with beautiful gardens, unique features - including a Treehouse and the Poison Garden - and magnificent architecture, all brought to life with water. -- Duchess of Northumberland
The Alnwick Garden works with local producers to showcase the very best of Northumbrian produce and wares. Shop when you visit us, or drop in when you’re passing. The Garden Shop is open every day 10am - 4pm. You don't need a Garden ticket to visit the shop.
Take a taste of Northumberland home, with locally produced pies, puddings and cakes. From Alnwick Rum to kippers from Seahouses and local honey, there’s a fantastic selection.
The Treehouse is one of the most magical and unique restaurants to be found anywhere in the world. It’s high up in the treetops, with a roaring log fire in the centre of the room and trees growing through the floor. Most importantly, the locally-inspired food is delicious.
Always featuring local fish and seafood, organic meats from Northumberland’s farmlands and other regional specialities, the Treehouse Restaurant menus highlight local quality, taste and change throughout the seasons. There’s a great wine list, a good range of beers and regular live music.
For a family dining experience that you'll all enjoy, a great night out with friends or a romantic dinner for two, there's nowhere quite like it. We always recommend booking ahead for lunch or dinner.
Proudly sitting on the Treehouse decking is our newly refurbished, re-branded bar, The Potting Shed - it's a fabulous place of curiosity filled with anything and everything to do with gardening. If you fancy a satisfying lunch, but don't want a full restaurant meal, The Potting Shed is perfect for you.
During the day you can grab a drink with some friends, a range of hot and cold delicious light lunch choices, and relax - and all as you take in the unique atmosphere. Choose from classics such as a bacon baguette, chef's soup of the day, or perhaps some irresistible sweet potato fries, served with lime and coriander yoghurt.
For a fantastic family lunch, why not eat outside on our Treehouse decking? Just order inside, eat outside - simple as that! Adults can relax to sunshine and birdsong, while kids can dash across rope bridges, run around and enjoy the enchanting walkways.
In the evening The Potting Shed really comes to life, and is open exclusively for our dinner guests to enjoy a pre-dinner drink before moving on to the restaurant for their meal, or a leisurely nightcap to end the evening.
The Pavilion Café is a peaceful place to relax and unwind whilst drinking in the fabulous view of the Grand Cascade.
