Magical family holidays in The Alnwick Garden

Alnwick, Northumberland

Help the fairy tale characters hidden within the walls of The Alnwick Garden save Beauty from the Wicked Queen.

Join a band of fairy tale characters on an exciting quest through The Alnwick Garden. Track down important clues hidden in places such as the Ornamental Garden, Cherry Orchard and Poison Garden and use their clues to help you face challenges, solve puzzles and use magic before discovering the Wicked Queen’s poison.

Get into the fairy tale spirit by dressing up as your favourite character and make keepsakes in the Crafty Cottage, like enchanted flowers, bewitched bottles and magical mirrors.

Replenish your fairy-dust - and Mum and Dad’s energy - at the modern-day witches and wizards favourite, The Hogs Head Inn. Relax into comfy armchairs for dinner and stay the night, ready to tackle the Knight’s Quest at Alnwick Castle the next day.
