A recent visitor survey showed that 98% of visitors to Northumberland said they loved the scenery, serenity, the castles and activities. What they were disappointed with was the shopping and food and drink.
This picture was taken about a mile off shore from Amble in Northumberland. We have a wonderful array of seafood that annoyingly often disappears off to Spain and other Meditterreaan countries to fee the hoards of toursits each summer.
Northumberland’s seafood is known to be amongst the best in the country. Lobsters, flatfish, oysters, crab you simply can’t beat it. The noble kipper has graced countless breakfast tables across the world and Seahouses folk will proudly tell you that it all happened because of a fire in a herring shed in the village!
