The Poison Garden is situated in Alnwick, in England's Northumberland county.
There is a huge iron gate at the entrance of the garden where visitors are explicitly told not to stop and smell the flowers. According to garden authorities, nearly 600,000 people visit the garden annually, and are allowed to only undertake guided tours.
But despite the warnings, some people end up fainting by inhaling toxic fumes from these lethal plants.
Apart from tourists, botanists from across the world also visit the garden to see poisonous plants like Monkshood, Rhododendrons and Wolf's Bane. It is also home to Ricin, commonly known as Castor Bean plant, which according to the Guinness Book of World Records is the world's most poisonous plant.
About The Poison Garden
Smithsonian Magazine said in an article that the garden was envisioned by Jane Percy, the Duchess of Northumberland, in 2005.
After visiting the infamous Medici poison garden, the duchess became enthralled with the idea of creating a garden of plants that could kill instead of heal. Another visit to the archeological site of the largest hospital in Scotland reinforced her interest in creating a garden of lethal plants, the Smithsonian Magazine report said.
The BBC said in a report that the duchess hired Jacques Wirtz, the landscape architect who conceptualised the French Tuileries, to transform the Christmas trees-laden stretch into something unconventional.Click for more trending news
