Alnwick Gardens, Northumberland
Alnwick Castle Garden was initiated by Jane Percy, Duchess of Northumberland, in October 2001. The project cost £42,000,000 and the fountain and original garden were designed by Jacques Wirtz and Peter Wirtz. The Garden which has grown and developed over the years, is run as a charitable trust. The Duchess has a very much ‘hands on’ approach to her garden and you may spot her amongst the shrubberies!
