The 3 Best Villages in Northumberland

Northumberland is the most northern county in England and it is best known for its historic castles, miles of stunning coastlines and fantastic scenery. It also has many quaint villages that are definitely worth exploring.


Warkworth is a small yet quaint village with numerous artisan shops, inns and eateries. It is best known for its historical sights like the Hermitage and 12th century church. The well preserved medieval castle is one of the largest in northern England.


The beach at Bamburgh is pristine with drifting sand dunes and spectacular views of Bamburgh castle everywhere you look. The village itself has a good choice of places to eat including the Copper Kettle Tea Room which is one of the best in the country.


This little fishing village is not just a gateway to the Farne Islands, it has its own sights to explore with cute cafes and souvenir shops. The busy harbour and pretty, colourful houses are a great location for photographers, as well as some of the wildlife which can be spotted from the coastal clifftops.
