Hulne Park is the only one remaining of the three parks that once surrounded Alnwick Castle in Northumberland, providing wood and meat for the table of the Percy family, the Dukes of Northumberland. The park is walled, and was landscaped by Capability Brown.

It is the site of Hulne Priory, Alnwick Abbey, and Brizlee Tower.

It is open to pedestrian visitors at set times in the summer.
