What’s to do in Morpeth

According to the locals you can’t miss the Sanderson Arcade entrance, I’ve yet to see it personally despite having wandered through it multiple times – must be all the eye level catching bargains or the blinkers were on again.

More than just a high street, Morpeth has plenty of shops, beauty/spa salons, boutiques, gyms and a leisure centre. It also hosts a farmer’s market every Wednesday and on the 1st Saturday of each month.

Explore the historic town of Morpeth, mixing old with new you will find some quaint and quirky boutiques, a 13th century Chantry which is home to the Bagpipe museum and the Northumbrian Arts and Craft Gallery.

The gorgeous French Grey Tales shop is just nearby to the Bagpipe museum – so if you fancy partaking in a class of learning how to dress make, candle making or to buy some autentico paints for furniture, then this is the definitely the place to visit. French Grey Tales

Wandering back up the street, you will find your high street Greggs amongst local coffee shops, boots, superdrug and your local banks. Rutherford and Co a luxury lifestyle store is well worth a visit.

After all that shopping you will almost certainly be thinking of where to go for a bite to eat and a well deserved coffee or glass of wine… There are plenty of places to choose from.  I’d recommend Carlos for fish and chips, fortune cookie for chinese (take away), Manzil for indian (take away or dine in) and the Sun Inn which serves traditional home cooked pub food.

If it’s a few cocktails or a quiet setting that you are after try Bar Luga and the newly refurbished Black and Grey, I’m loving the new decor, furniture and outdoor area.

Whatever you do in Morpeth, I’m sure you will have an enjoyable experience.
