Travel:

Rail Travel

Northumberland is served by two main lines. The main East Coast Line serves the north and east of the county whilst the Newcastle to Carlisle Line, which runs along the Tyne Valley, serves the south and west.

The main tourist towns of Berwick, Hexham and Morpeth have stations with regular trains whilst Alnwick is served by nearby Alnmouth. Other stations have less regular services.

Buses

Regular bus services run on routes throughout the county and the main towns are all well served. Good planning is essential if you intend using rural routes.

Motoring

If you want to see the most of Northumberland a car or motorcycle is needed to get off the beaten track. The road network in Northumberland is extensive and in many places lightly used.

Major routes from South to North are:

  • A1 - Runs from Newcastle via Alnwick and Morpeth then into Scotland just north of Berwick.
  • A68 - Runs from Corbridge through Redesdale and via Carter Bar into Scotland.
  • A686 - Runs from Newcastle via Belsay and joins the A68 near Otterburn.
  • A697 - Runs from the A1 just north of Morpeth via Wooler and into Scotland at Coldstream.

The main route from East to West is the A69 which runs from Newcastle via Corbridge, Hexham, Haydon Bridge and Haltwhistle to Carlisle.

In the South East of the county and alternative main route to the A1 is to use the A1068 which passes through Amble, Warkworth and Alnmouth on it's way to Alnwick.

Country roads reach out into some very remote places such as Alwinton and Upper Coquetdale .

Cycling

The terrain in Northumberland very varied, in the south and east of the county you may encounter reasonably easy terrain but in the north and west many roads will have long and steep hills. There is a coastal cycle route which is way-marked.

If you are intending a cycle tour in Northumberland you would be well advised to plan routes very carefully.
