Combine the old and the new with a walk around Morpeth's modern Wednesday market which is just a stone's throw from the 13th century Chantry that houses the town's Bagpipe Museum and Northumbrian Arts and Craft Gallery. Why not stay in a Morpeth bed and breakfast and keep close to the action.

You can wander along woodland paths in Morpeth's colourful Carlisle Park which boasts river boating, tennis courts and bowls.

For the best in local produce, experience Morpeth's Farmers Market that takes place on the first Saturday of every month in the historic market place. Stay in a Morpeth Hotel in the heart of the market town, and you'll never be too far away from a great evening. There is also Rutherfords, an old-fashioned department store selling just about anything, that began trading in 1846.

The Northumbrian Gathering is three exciting jam-packed days celebrating the county's traditions, with concerts, street events, dances and exhibitions.

Within a short distance of Morpeth lie wonderful country estates and gardens like Wallington House and Belsay Hall, Castle and Gardens. Druridge Bay, with its magnificent seven-mile stretch of golden sand and dunes is only 20 minutes away by car. Also nearby is Woodhorn Museum Archives and Country Park where you can explore the rich industrial heritage that this part of Northumberland is very proud of.
