Alnwick Garden and Castle - Beautiful Garden, Hogwarts, Harry Potter and more in the beautiful town of ALNWICK!
Before we headed into Scotland, a friend of mine told me to stop here Alnwick
to see the garden and the castle which was used to film some of the
Hogwarts scenes in the movie Harry Potter.
Since were passing close to Alnwick, we decided to give it a go
and do another short visit.
Entrance was 13 pounds which is around 600 Pesos per person.
What we discovered inside was well worth the cost of the entrance.
It was the most beautiful garden I've ever seen!
As you walk in at the Pavilion, you will see
this Grand Cascade and spectacular fountain display.
Be amazed by their amazing fountain display facing the Pavilion.
The Alnwick Garden is a huge place and divided into different
sections. Each section deserves a visit.
What I enjoyed a lot was we don't really have gardens like this in the
Philippines. The temperature in the UK
as perfect for flowering plants.
I guess this place was also a perfect spot for school tours.
Some people just stay here for the whole day and just RELAX!
This was when I also fell in
love with Poppies.
They have a variety of Poppies and
they were simply gorgeous.
Another interesting section they have was the collection of different
poisonous plants called the POISON GARDEN. They have a schedule to go inside and unfortunately we didn't have enough time to wait. But I heard the guide that one of the rules was not to touch anything. Maybe some of them can cause allergic reactions when touched.
We carried on walking into the Woodlands and
all I could smell was fresh air.

After a nice visit to the Alnwick Garden, don't go away yet as there's still
more to see here and that is the Alnwick Castle.
Alnwick Castle was a venue for the two very popular Harry Potter movies.
This was were the Chamber of Secrets was shot and the Philosopher's Stone.
How I wish we could have more time to explore inside the castle.
They have castle tour for 13.05 Pounds. Sounds very expensive
for some but you only do it once so go for it.
All we could do was just relax and stare at this beautiful castle.
And how glad we were stopping over at Alnwick.
Even though it's not part of our itinierary, yet, we made the right decision
to stop by and get to enjoy this magnificent place.
