WATCH: The Alnwick Garden launches poignant TV advert

A touching new TV advert has been launched by The Alnwick Garden.

The footage shows the various stages of the life of a girl, who initially visits the attraction with her parents and then takes along her own children and eventually grandchild.

It showcases different aspects and features of the Garden - youngsters playing under the cherry blossom, a Hallowe'en party, a marriage proposal in front of the Grand Cascade, a wedding in the Treehouse.

The main character then returns as an old lady to sit and enjoy her memories, before some flowers are left beneath the canopy of cherry blossom to mark her passing. A teddy bear connects each segment and is passed down the generations.

The story also reflects the different seasons in the garden's annual cycle.

At the end, Northumberland-born actor Robson Green signs off the video with 10 words: "Visit The Alnwick Garden. Your story, your life, your garden."

An online campaign is due to start this week using a 30-second version of the advert. Here is a more extensive two-minute version.

One of the world’s most contemporary gardens, The Alnwick Garden was built to break the rules. The Duchess of Northumberland embarked upon the creation of 'a huge public garden of classic symmetry and astonishing beauty' 20 years ago and opened its gates to the public in October 2001. Today, it is not only an inspiring landscape with beautifully sculpted foliage brought to life by water but the Wirtz International design has combined unique features and spaces to encourage interaction, learning and play.

Along the way, new features have been added - the Poison Garden, home to a gruesome collection of lethal plants; Europe’s largest wooden Treehouse; the Serpent Garden with its fascinating water features; and the Cherry Orchard, home to the largest collection of Tai Haku trees.

There are 200 species of roses in the David Austin Rose Garden, swathed with honeysuckle and clematis, filling the garden with incredible scents in the summer.

The Alnwick Garden is also a registered charity that aims to stimulate change through play, learning, the arts, and healthy activity, and addresses disability and the economic renaissance of a rural community.
