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.
The Romans knew a thing or two about location, location, location. So you will find Corbridge very accessible at the crossroads of the east-west Newcastle to Carlisle A69 and the north-south Edinburgh to Darlington A68. Corbridge Railway Station is on the Tyne Valley line between Newcastle, Hexham and Carlisle with connections to both the East Coast and West Coast main lines. While Corbridge has an excellent bus service, including express buses to and from Newcastle. And Newcastle Airport is just a short drive or taxi ride away.
Hexham and its Abbey and old Gaol are a few miles west of Corbridge. Newcastle, Carlisle, and Europe’s biggest shopping mall, the Metrocentre, are easily reachable by car or public transport. The magical moorlands and wildernesses of the Scottish Borders, peppered with explorable, historic market towns, are near. The Eden Valley and Lake District’s stunning scenery are day trip territory. Kielder’s unique observatory in the Northumberland International Dark Sky Park and Chesters Roman Fort and Museum, Housesteads Roman Fort and Vindolanda are closer still.
There is a good choice of Hotels, B&B's and Self Catering accommodation in the Corbridge area and it makes a good base from which to explore Hadrian's Wall and Northumberland.
There is something Dickensian about the secret streets and courtyards of Corbridge, where you never know what is around the next corner. Backstreets like St Helen’s must be explored – and Bishop’s and Old Bakery Yards. Visit The Pele Tower by St Andrew’s Church in Market Place – now a historic Game of Thrones style pub which has to be experienced to be believed. St Andrew’s Church itself is one of the oldest churches in Britain and open to all every day. Tucked into the shadow of the Pele Tower, is the Old Market Cross, which stands atop a Roman altar salvaged from Corstopitum. The cross stood in the marketplace opposite the church throughout the medieval period. It was removed in 1807, restored and re-erected in its present location in 1975. Our bridge, the oldest surviving over the Tyne, looks over lovely river walks. While Aydon Castle is a short drive or interesting walk away.
