We asked some of our team where their favourite place or what their favourite season was at The Alnwick Garden....

The Serpent Garden

Tracy Graham - Elderberries Co-ordinator.

In the Serpent Garden, a topiary snake entices you past a series of sculptures, in which water flows over polished stainless steel and creates a canyon through which you can try to squeeze without getting wet.

Mark Brassell

Mark Brassell - Garden Director.

The Lookout is a vantage point to see The Grand Cascade, an incredible water feature which is said to be the largest of its kind in the UK

Nicola is responsible for organising all of the events, so it only makes sense that her choice is a season rather than a place!
