Latest reviews | Events in Morpeth | 10 Places to Stay

The County Town of Northumberland combines specialist shopping facilities, historical buildings, plentiful accommodation and an excellent Wednesday market celebrating its 800th year. Morpeth is only 20 minutes from the Metro Centre shopping complex in Gateshead and the regional capital Newcastle-upon-Tyne, with its international reputation for superb nightlife, restaurants and cultural attractions.

The Normans sited a castle in the town above the River Wansbeck, and 12th century Cistercians built an abbey nearby. Though these have largely gone, much of the old Morpeth does remain and is outlined in a fascinating town trail. The 13th century Chantry has been restored to provide a home for the unique Bagpipe Museum, Northumbrian Craft Centre and the Tourist Information Centre. Thus blending old and new, Morpeth remains at heart what it has always been - a market town of great character, the focal point for villages around.
