About Alnwick Garden
The first garden was laid down in 1750 by the 1st Duke of Northumberland who employed locally born Capability Brown, the most celebrated gardener of the day, to landscape the parkland adjoining the castle grounds.

The gardens were at their most complete in the mid-19th century when the 4th Duke created an italianate garden which reflected the Italian Renaissance period being created within the Castle State Rooms at that time.

The 4th Duke purchased two pairs of 16th century Venetian wrought-iron gates from Italy. These have been restored and are re-hung in their original positions in The Alnwick Garden, at the main entrance and at the entrance to the Ornamental Garden.
