The World’s Most Dangerous Garden

The Poison Garden at England’s Alnwick Garden is beautiful—and filled with plants that can kill you. If you visit, DO NOT to stop and smell the flowers. This garden is home to 100 plants that can kill you.

The gardens encompass 14 acres and attract over 600,000 visitors each year, making them one of North England’s most popular tourist attractions. Included in the gardens are narcotic plants like opium poppies, cannabis, magic mushrooms, and tobacco. The carefully curated garden also contains about 100 legendary killers like Atropa belladonna (deadly nightshade), Strychnos nux-vomica (strychnine), and Conium maculatum (hemlock).

Many of these plants require special government permission to grow. The dangers of these poisonous plants are very real. Many can kill or sicken people just through touch. For this reason, many of the plants are caged, and the garden is under a 24-hour security watch.
