Through the Venetian gates at the top of the Grand Cascade is the Ornamental Garden; a structured garden brimming with plants. Here, an intricate planting pattern is created with a play of light and shade, grey and green foliage, flowers, fruit and aerial lacework created by pleached crab apples. Follow inviting pathways bordered by lavender and fruit trees, and discover quiet places to sit and catch the sun.

The Alnwick Garden is being created by Jacques and Peter Wirtz, celebrated international garden designers from Belgium.

In design terms The Alnwick Garden pushes the boundaries, and this is due in no small part to the Duchess of Northumberland herself, who has always believed that almost anything is possible if you get the right people involved. Her original concept was to produce a garden design framework and then to bring in the specialists, the experts, the best in their field, to ensure that each individual garden and concept was cutting edge in terms of both design and technology.

Near to Alnwick Gardens is Holy Island
