Overview


Explore an Extraordinary Victorian House and Gardens Cragside, creation of Victorian inventor and landscape genius Lord Armstrong, is a garden of breathtaking drama whatever the season. Surrounding the house is one of the largest rock gardens in Europe. Beyond is a vast woodland garden where rhododendrons and azaleas reach full bloom during May and June. Soaring high above are the magnificent spires of Armstrong´s transatlantic conifer collection which provides shelter to the estate´s squirrel population. Across the valley in the terraced garden, the Orchard House still produces fresh fruit of all varieties. Summer features splendid carpet bedding and autumn the colourful dahlia walk. Today Armstrong´s amazing creation can be explored on foot and by car. The lakeside walks, adventure play area and labyrinth are all good reasons to visit Cragside.
