Our route takes us from Alnwick Castle, used for filming 'Harry Potter', out into the beautiful parkland of Hulne Park, to visit the remains of Hulne Priory. The wildlife on the walk is abundant, so is the peace and tranquillity of the parkland on the doorstep of the bustling market town of Alnwick. Combine the walk with a visit to the castle and Alnwick Garden for a super day out.

Please note that dogs are strictly forbidden in the park.

Great walk with lots of interest. Way mark 3 has gone but just keep going on blue walk and it all works out well. You get to the river by a notice board about the abbey Loads of free parking between waymark 1 and 2.

One of the most beautiful walks we have done. Ok, so it is through parkland but, since it is Capability Brown landscape and well tended, was so tranquil with a vista at every turn. We met nobody (heigh of summer)so had the place to ourselves. Used, apparently, for filming of Robin Hood. We walked from Alnick Castle but you can park for free on the road near the archway at waymark 2 Unfortunately, at this point the next part has been blocked off completely. No matter, after passing through the arch follow the blue route, which is this walk in reverse. If you want to follow the walk using this guide, continue along the drive until you reach the signs 'Hulne Park Sawmill' and 'Park Farm House'. There is a track between the 2 (end of blue route walk). Follow this track and you will pick up the signs for the blue route in reverse (this walk). I would thoroughly recommend.

Excellent walk and very shelterd and quite. Beware that the path from point 3 to 4 is now closed; but you can continue on the road at point3, go over the bridge and turn right to join the path at point 4. Some parts of the estate are closed without notice, when we did the walk in April 09 the path was closed at point 5; however we took the short cut via Park Farm and rejoin at 8.
