It is called the Grand Cascade and it really is grand, it is a huge tiered water feature that has coordinated fountains going off at intervals and an overflow at the bottom, which ingeniously has small tractors where children can fill their buckets with the overflowing water and transport it around.
To the right of this area is a child’s water wonderland full of water fountains and cascading water features which you can jump in and run through, we were so lucky it was a hot day. The boys were able to get soaking wet and cool off, without the fear of freezing.
Another great area is the poison garden this is a really interesting guided tour which tells you about dangerous and poison our plants, as you can imagine a subject which the boys were enthralled in. It was a touch alarming to realise just how poisonous some of these beautiful plants are, and the affect they cash have on a person.
I would definitely recommend Alnwick Garden there is lots to do yet is an extremely relaxing environment. We loved the day we spent here and would not hesitate to revisit the Gardens or Castle. We also Visited the Tree House in the Gardens but that deserves a post of its own it was amazing, it was like no tree house I have ever seen.
