Britain’s coolest garden houses deadly plants and giant treehouse

Published on : Thursday, July 9, 2015

treehouseUnapologetically contemporary, occasionally weird and always inspiring, Alnwick Garden in Northeast England is a must-see. It features a poison garden (home to Deadly Nightshade, Mandrake and even a certain narcotic normally banned in Britain) as well as a bamboo labyrinth and a treehouse restaurant.

 
It’s pretty intoxicating even for those who wouldn’t know a Sweet Pea from a spade. While you’re there, don’t miss Alnwick Castle, the medieval fortress used as a backdrop for the Harry Potter films, Robin Hood Prince of Thieves and Downton Abbey.

 
Alnwick Poison Garden contains plants from around the world renowned for their deadly properties.

 
The treehouse is home to wobbly rope bridges, treetop walkways and a highly regarded restaurant serving delicious local dishes.

 
Every half hour the water in the Grand Cascade leaps to life to create a dancing display formed by carefully choreographed jets.

 
Alnwick Castle is home to works of art by Canaletto, Titian and Van Dyck as well as magnificent state rooms and more.
