Planning your visit

We advise that you allow your group at least two and a half hours for a visit to The Alnwick Garden. However, a whole day can easily be spent in Alnwick giving you a chance to explore the garden and the town of Alnwick in more detail.

A five minute stroll leads you into the historical town centre – Barter Books (one of the largest secondhand bookshops in Britain), cafes, bars, shops, museums and, of course, Alnwick Castle.

Keep hold of your garden tickets as they allow you to come and go as often as you wish during the date of your visit.

The Alnwick Garden is for everyone, so we strive to be accessible to all including The Treehouse. We have wheelchairs and mobility scooters available for hire, just let us know your requirements at the time of booking.
Our coach drop off area is as close to the garden as possible and reserved wheelchairs/scooters can be waiting there for your arrival.
