VIDEO: Big is beautiful at the opening of the Giants Adventure

The Alnwick Garden, recently voted Northumberland’s favourite Large Visitor Attraction of the Year, have revealed their latest “Giants” attraction which it is hoped will generate interest from around the world.

Featuring enormous installations that make humans look tiny, the installations include a ‘winking’ giant, who is taking a bath in the pond, with bubbles popping to the surface as he happily ‘trumps’ in the water bringing much merriment to all, but especially children. The giant installations also include an enormous bra and bloomers on a washing line suspended with giant pegs, swinging between the trees close to the giant lying in the pond, an giant’s tea mug with ‘steam’ pouring out the top, a Poison bottle complete with skull and crossbones and a pair of giant boots that a family of mice have turned into their home.

The Duchess of Northumberland said “we are constantly looking to do something really different and we feel that this will bring visitors from both the North East and from around the world. Everything has been built and developed from our designer’s original drawings, so this is a genuinely unique attraction”.

The Giants Attraction is free with the normal entry fee to The Alnwick Garden.
