The nearest main line railway station is Alnmouth for Alnwick, which is regularly served by trains from Edinburgh, Newcastle and beyond.

It is not possible to walk along the old trackbed to Greenrigg Halt from Alnmouth Station.
These buses stop at the entrance to the Lionheart Enterprise Park – from there it’s only a short walk to the Lionheart site – please remember to advise the driver where you’re getting off:

- Service 15 – Thropton – Rothbury – Alnwick – Willowburn Retail Park – Lionheart Enterprise Park

The National Cycle Route No1 passes near to Alnmouth Station. One of our aims is to provide access from there into Alnwick. Until then, you can travel up Bilton Bank from Alnmouth Station and turn right at Bilton Farm to Greenrigg Bridge. There you can either jump onto our trains to Lionheart or you can use the new cyclepath that runs alongside the line.
Alnwick town centre can be accessed using a combination of designated paths, lanes and the road.
Cycling along the A1068 road from Lesbury to Alnwick is not recommended as it is hilly, twisty, narrow in places and has fast moving traffic.
