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.


  1. Those white tulips are gorgeous and I really hope you had some tea in that tree house cafe!

  2. i certainly did, you have to have the yummy food!

  3. This post is beautiful, beautiful, beautiful... It makes me wish to live in a place like that one!
