The Poison Garden in Alnwick Castle, Northumberland, England, is famous for being the world’s deadliest garden. Home to around 100 toxic plants – hemlock, laurel hedges, henbane, atropa belladonna, datura, aconitine, to name a few, it’s one of the most beautiful attractions of north England bringing in more than 600,000 visitors annually.

The garden is the brainchild of Jane Percy, the Duchess of Northumberland. It has around 95 killer plants, with more being added to the collection all the time. A lot of these plants are what you call cottage garden plants. They are very common and are grown in many people’s gardens.

  1. Thank you for liking “Eerie Islands: Part 1.” I enjoyed learning about the Poison Garden. I have not heard of this place before. It is an interesting and beautiful garden, but it is not exactly a place to relax and unwind. The virtual tour is enough for me. :)
