The  Alnwick  Garden  gives  pleasure  in  so  many  ways  to  so  many  people  from  all  walks  of  life

It has become a contemporary pleasure garden, which brings joy to millions. When I see photographs of it in darkness I feel that I am watching it sleep, resting in preparation for the people it has to entertain the following day. To me a garden without people is dead, and people have brought The Alnwick Garden to life and restored its soul.
