Northumberland towns and villages

Outstanding beauty
Spend your holiday in our idyllic towns and villages and pick from tiny villages perched on staggering stretches of coastline, bustling market towns boasting marvellous castles, and remote, countryside villages that hold traditional county shows.

Coast, castles and cobbles

Staggering, seaside castle remains, cosy cafés on cobbled corners, bustling markets with trinket-filled stalls and country pubs overlooking sweeping landscapes.

All of this and more lies in our towns and villages, where the welcomes are warm, the historical sites are spectacular and the locally produced food is exquisite. From Blyth, the biggest town in Northumberland, to the ancient village of Warkworth, and Bamburgh the prettiest village in Northumberland, there is so much to explore. 

Experience that small town hustle and bustle on the bunting-strew, fairy-lit, cobbled streets of our magical market towns.
