|The Pavilion at The Alnwick Garden houses the garden café. The Alnwick Garden was the brainchild of the Duchess of Northumberland. It was established in the early 21st century in the grounds of Alnwick Castle. It is a charitable foundation that promotes gardening skills and is run as a separate visitor attraction from the castle itself, providing a wide range of garden settings and a learning experience for children.|
The origins of the word come from the French pavillon and Latin papilionem, meaning ‘butterfly’ and ‘tent’. This is due to the appearance of a tent’s canvas, which looks like butterfly wings that are open.
A garden or park pavilion may be open sided and used to provide shelter for exhibitions, restaurants, lectures, sports facilities and so on. In this instance, a pavilion is akin to a bandstand, gazebo, kiosk, poolhouse or summerhouse and often includes seating. Some garden pavilions can be ornamental or delicate structures.

 Structural pavilions
A structural pavilion is typically a portion of a larger building. Its lightweight appearance distinguishes it from the main building. It may be placed next to a building (as a subsidiary structure), in front of it (as an entranceway) or on top of it (and only accessible from the rooftop).
