They had a poison garden at Alnwick castle.But there wasn't one of these. To be honest, it was a bit of an ordeal. We had to be taken round in a group with a lady talking about the plants. She was a bit of a 'Dragon' and bored the socks off most people, but more of that when I get round to doing my blog of our North East trip. (When I have the energy. I'm still exhausted!)
