We visited Howick Hall Gardens at the end of a week in the area when we visited Alnwick and Cragside amongst others. Large and somewhat impersonal the impression left. So prioritise Howick, privately owned with a delightful feel to it, the family are putting personal...More

You'll need to follow the map carefully to find your way around. The new sensory garden is worth seeking out. - Worth a visit if you're in the area.
