A thoroughly delightful piece of countryside! Love how it is free to walk around and some of the sights are just breathtaking. Will defiantly be back with my hound!

What amazing senery in this park which has a river with water falls, priory ruins, fields with sheep and cattle and walking trails suited to a good day out.

If you are in the area you must pay a visit to Hulne Park. There is free parking at Bailiffgate just outside of the gatekeepers lodge. Entry is free but note that the park does not open until 11 am. Dogs are not allowed even on a lead and it is not a right of way. We chose the blue route with an add on of the yellow route (approximately 7 miles). All the walks are well signposted and there are several 'you are here' signs so that you are never in doubt about your location.The scenery is breathtaking and special points of interest are the Brizlee Tower, the burial grounds, the Priory and the Iron bridge. Even though the day was slightly misty it was a wonderful day out.

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.
