Explore from The Amble Inn

Make the most of your visit to The Amble Inn with our guide to the very best things to do and see while you're staying with us.

The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

Famed for its magnificent beaches, castle-studded coastline, unique islands with their diverse wildlife and an area steeped in history spanning thousands of years.

Amble stands at the southern gateway of the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a designated stretch of the coast which spans the coast and surrounding areas to Berwick-upon-Tweed.

Warkworth Castle

Crowning the hilltop above the River Coquet in picturesque Warkworth, this impressive castle with its cross-shaped keep is a must-visit attraction to explore. Take in spectacular river and coastal views from the castle walls and explore the floors, rooms and ruins of this mighty fortress – once home to rebel lord Harry Hotspur, who was immortalised by Shakespeare.

Druridge Bay Country Park

With three miles of dune-fringed beaches, a large freshwater lake surrounded by meadows and woodland and a raft of watersports, - from kayaking to sailing – the Park is always worth a visit, whatever the time of year.

 

Coquet Island and RSPB Seabird Sanctuary

Boat trips sally forth from Amble to nearby Coquet Island - just a mile off the coast. The island is a magnet for wildlife and bird enthusiasts, drawn by the incredible bird and wildlife population, including the roseate tern, one of the UK’s rarest nesting seabirds.  Amble is home to the UK’s only Puffin Festival. Held in May, the festival celebrates these colourful sea birds and the town’s proud declaration as being ‘the friendliest port.’ 

Amble Harbour Village

Wander through Amble’s harbour village and explore the Scandinavia-esque ‘pods’ with their timber cladding and preppy coastal finds.  Amble’s coastal chic continues with a picturesque marina - one of the few in northeast England to be surrounded by mile-upon-mile of pristine sandy beaches.
