Nestled at the mouth of the river Coquet lies Amble, which is morphing from its industrial past into the Padstow of the north.
Amble hosts the UK’s only puffin festival, inspired by the colourful 36,000-bird colony nesting on nearby Coquet Island. Kayak up the Coquet or relax to the sound of halyards clinking in Amble’s marina.
Take a boat trip from Amble harbour and see the vast array of seabirds, seals and roseate terns or indulge in a spot of fishing – the waters are teeming with mackerel between June and September.
Traditional Northumbrian cobles have taken shelter in Amble’s harbour for centuries and still haul home their local catch on a daily basis.
Blessed with a picturesque waterfront and access to a plentiful supply of fresh fish, you have a choice of dining options while watching the boats come and go on Amble Pier. From lobster and champagne, to the finest locally-produced, Italian inspired ice cream or good old fashioned fish and chips –all are on offer within view of the harbour.
