The gardens cost £12 per adult & £10 for concessions, for what is really a very nice water feature and a large café. If you really love a nice water fountain display and feel it worth £12, then go have a look!

The Alnwick gardens are Day only, whereas you can ask for the castle tickets to be extended to a yr free of charge at the time of purchase. We found the staff super helpful and friendly, so don't hesitate to ask for help if... More
Does Alnwick garden allow re-admission? We are staying in the town, have tickets booked and intend to go in the morning; family also have tickets for the same day but can't make it until the afternoon. We would like to come out for lunch in our holiday cottage and go back in with the family in the afternoon.

Hi The best time to see the roses is mid- later June (weather dependant) - especially the beautiful Alnwick Roses.
