Explore the magical garden at Cragside

In the gardens of Cragside, Northumberland, a labyrinth awaits the bravest adventurers. Named after a reputed local witch, Nelly’s Labyrinth is a network of winding paths and tunnels cut out of a vast area of rhododendron forest.

The rest of the gardens are worth exploring too. One of the largest rock gardens in Europe leads down to the Iron Bridge, which in turn leads to the formal garden.

As well as being a formidable Victorian inventor and innovator (as you’ll see when if you visit the house), Lord Armstrong, was a talented and experimental gardener.
