A Destination of Distinction
This is one original and surprising village and small town. Some of the oldest finds in Britain, including rare Roman armour and the Corbridge Lion, are housed in our English Heritage Roman Town. Where you can see a time capsule of Roman life inside the newly refurbished museum and then explore the remains of the streets they once walked. All just a few miles away from the World Heritage Site of Hadrian’s Wall itself and the popular coast to coast Hadrian’s Wall Path.
Corbridge is also known for its large number of independent businesses. The present day Market Place has a baker, art shop, traditional grocer and more. With award-winning Forum Books close by at The Chapel – a stunning transformation of the old Methodist Chapel complete with preserved pulpit – along with Vintage At The Tower.
Across the village there are acclaimed independent clothes and shoe shops for fans of fashion, featuring top brands, as well as beauticians and hairdressers. For foodies there are many indy cafes, several historic pubs, a deli, a butcher, and a wine bar. Plus a range of Italian, Indian and English restaurants.
There is much else to discover including jewellers, a baby/nursery store housed in an old converted bank, a cookshop, garden room, florists, gift shops and furniture stores. Plus interior design shops and antique and vintage emporiums. Several are regularly featured on national TV and in magazines and newspapers both in the UK and across the world. And there are excellent hotels and B&Bs to stay in along with a range of self-catering accommodation.
