Gem of the North East

Richard E,
Absolutely fantastic gem here in the north east really worth a visit if you get the chance. Every so often a small pipe group plays and sounded really superb

Not Just Hot Air!

A free museum with toilet and a disabled lift! A very informative museum with the complete history of the Northumberland Bag Pipes and their rivalry with the Scottish version! Well worth a visit!

Whether or not you are a bagpipe enthusiastic it's well worth taking the time to visit this excellent little museum dedicated to bagpipes. I found it fascinating, having finally taken the time to visit. It's certainly worth it.

Forget brassy Scottish bagpipes for real pipes!

This is a little museum about the Northumbrian Pipes. It is well laid out and informative. These pipes worked by the players elbow have a softer note but as long a history

Very interesting

As a Scottish family with a 9 year old bagpipe playing son this museum was a no-brainer for a visit. We all found it really interesting and informative. It's not the largest of museums but with free entry you can't go wrong. Great tourist information and gift shop downstairs too.
