Easter in Northumberland – A cracking good time for all!

As the “Tales of Northumberland” hit the screen’s with Robson Green exploring the idyllic, charming and Northumberland iconic landmarks and rich coastal walks, it is easy to see why tourism in Northumberland has seen such a significant rise.

Easter in Northumberland is awash with activities for all ages and there is something for everyone to enjoy. Experience a Harry Potter flying lesson at Alnwick castle or watch the medieval Alchemist show before having a spot of lunch or a wander around the beautiful Tree House.

Holy Island is another great place to explore, note the timing of the tides so you don’t get stranded along the causeway. The main attractions on the island are the Lindisfarne Priory, the castle and the gospelsWhy not stop off at the Barn at Beal for something delicious to eat.

There are plenty of day trips that you can organise, we particularly love the Puffin image that Richard Peters took on his day trip to the Farne Islands.

Why not follow in Robson Green’s footprints and explore the countryside and coastline? You will find plenty of advice and guided tours via the Shepherds Walk website. My personal favourite is walking from Craster taking in Dunstaburgh Castle dunstanburgh castleand then over on to the golf course and down on to the beautiful stretch of Embleton Bay.Embleton Bay

At the end of the beach, there’s a pub and if you walk a little further on you will come across the Joiner’s Arms.


On a Sunday morning, visit Amble, Robson Green in Ambleyou will find lots of stalls at the regular market on the harbour. Indulge in a barrista coffee, doughnuts or even a speciality ice cream from Spurellis. If your looking for a Sunday lunch, try the Wellwood Carvery or if it’s a fish restaurant you are after try  The Old Boat House located right on the harbour as one would expect 🙂

Robson Green once said, “I am never failed to be surprised by what is around the corner. It is evolving and changing all the time. It is stunning, it is beautiful and you are surrounded by solituade. Most importantly it’s my home”. It’s a sentiment that I concur with, Northumberland is my home too and its hidden gems of beautiful places to visit are simply magical.
