“A Walk In The Country On The Edge of Town”
Reviewed 28 March 2012

Hulne Park is the Deer Park adjacent to Alnwick Castle. It has a 'Model Farm' within the park and many ornate cottages, Brizlee Tower an ornate 'beacon tower' mentioned by 'Pevsner' and picturesque ruins, Hulne Priory and Hulne Abbey. If you like ornate handwrought ironwork you will be in for an absolute treat with exquisite work by the reknowned Steven Lunn not far from Brizlee Tower.

There are several very well marked walks within the park some of which are alongside the river Aln from which AlnWick gets its name. The landscape consists of hills and valleys although the main route through the park is easy walking mostly on tarmac.

You can easily walk for 7 or 8 miles in the park and spend the day there, entry is free. Take a picnic with you but ensure that you remove any trace of litter as there are no litter bins. The entrance to the park is situated along Ratten Row a mile to the west of Alnwick Castle.
