Lady Jane Percy, the Duchess of Northumberland, is set to hand over management of Alnwick Garden to an outside management company after nearly twenty years of managing the attraction.
The multi-million pound tourist attraction, set in the grounds of Alnwick Castle, will be run as a franchise by an outside company from 2015 - when the Duchess hopes to have finished building the Alnwick Garden.
The transformation of Alnwick Castle's eighteenth-century walled gardens, part of the Duke of Northumberland's estate, has cost over forty million pounds, and has brought fifty million pounds every year to the North East economy.
