Get kippered in Craster

Craster, Northumberland

Craster is the acclaimed home of the kipper – a breakfast favourite of the queen. But there’s more to Craster than fishy tales.

It has been claimed that enjoying a Craster kipper fillet sandwich with a pint of ‘Workie Ticket’, whilst soaking up the view of Dunstanburgh Castle’s majestic ruins is the best experience ever. 

It’s only a short mile along a grassy path to the castle for outdoorsy types, and the wee’uns can have great fun in the rock pools along the way.

On ‘smoking’ day, the smell alone is enough to tempt you to some Robson’s kippers, even if you don’t like them.

Local artist Mick Oxley is famous for his moody and tempestuous seascapes which capture the Craster coastline brilliantly. He’s often at work in his studio so be sure to pop in and say hello – it’s next to the pub.

Or sit by the harbour and watch the boats come in. But be sure to have a 99’er in your hand from the resident ice cream van.
