Click Tick List – Photograph 100 Gardens – The Alnwick Garden

I remember that this garden, on the outskirts of the pretty walled town of Alnwick in Northumberland, was originally famed for its water features. There are still a huge part of the garden but now the label attached should simply be a beautiful garden.

A trip here and lunch in the treehouse restaurant was a gift from my colleagues for my big birthday last year. Gav and I went in the summer of 2017 and even enjoyed a tour of the huge pump room that controls the impressive water fountain.

There were several distinct areas including a rose garden, poison garden and wonderful walled garden up on the hill. They also have a huge number of Cherry Trees and folk flock to see them blossom in the spring.

The garden up on the hill was my favourite full of interesting ideas beautiful water rills and pots overflowing with plants.

Love the teeny door within a door below.

We had beautiful weather and a lovely day all round and I would certainly go back again sometime.

** On a side note I forgot to include this garden on my list  so my total gardens now photographed from this book is now fifty two!
