Alnwick Gardens

Today is a Bank Holiday in the UK, so my friend and I decided to go to Alnwick Gardens in nearby Northumberland. Many will already know Alnwick Castle from the Harry Potter films. Here is a little taster of what we saw...

The Treehouse Cafe





and the Gardens







I try to visit every year, as something new is introduced. This year was the beginning of the Cherry Blossom Orchard which I was really looking forward to seeing but unfortunately it was so new that the trees were mere babies. I would recommend a visit in a few years time as there are so many trees it will be delightful at this time of year.
