Fantastic walk with beautiful views

A fantastic walking experience but not for the faint hearted as it's very hilly and steep in places.

Having not heard of this attraction I was very impressed on visiting how much there was to see and explore in the historic landscape. The follies are fascinating and the areas where one explores tunnels and grottoes are exciting too (although I wish I hadn't shone the torch on the roof of one tunnel to see all the cave spiders...

wonderful place to visit. I'd recommed going there for about half a day, maybe have picnic. Vies are amazing and everything is really well signposted so you won't get lost.

We live 30 minutes away from Hawkstone park and visit every 6 months, this time we had friends up from London and did the pumpkin trail. All thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Easy place to find and plenty of parking, not a good place to come with a pushchair as it's very up and down, but this is one of the great... More

This is a beautiful place to visit, especially in autumn. We only had a couple of hours but recommend making a day of it. Walks for a range of fitness levels but the best experience is to do the whole thing. An adventure for all ages!

A brilliant walk with lots of entertainment throughout the walk including a monument, tower and multiple caves to walk through. It was great to see so many families and dogs. I would recommend coming early and packing a picnic as we were fairly rushed at we arrived at 3pm (last entry). We will definitely revisit when we have more time.

Worth every penny this park takes you on a walk of the Victorian era, It is absolutely stunning so much so that some of the park has been used in films such as Narnia. It has such a variety from jungle woods to monuments to caves, follies and stunning cliff faces, moulded by winds and weathers. This is a magical... More

This is a fantastic place. Well worth the £8 entry. It's well maintained and designed. The walk can be quite a challenge with lots of steps, not for the faint hearted. Love the Druid temple.

Very interesting place to visit though you do need to be able to walk up steep steps, there's a tower on the top but you need to be able tackle steps.
