The wilder side of the Bamburgh Coast

Just to the north of Bamburgh, once the home of the Anglo-Saxon Kings of Northumbria lies a wilder stretch of coast. Although the beach walk to Seahouses south of Bamburgh is eternally popular, to the north, it is more diverse, has a range of wildlife habitats and plenty of those big sky views that Northumberland is famous for. There is even a ‘Titanic’ moment for those who remember the iconic scene from the 1997 film. This EASY walk, just 6-miles (10-kilometres) follows the coast and some inland paths.

Budle Bay lies at the southern end of the Lindisfarne National Nature Reserve. In the Autumn, thousands of migrating birds gather here to feed and rest. From April to October if conditions are right, kite surfers dazzle us with their aerial leaps and acrobatics as they whizz up and down in the safe waters of Budle Bay.

There is a wealth of terrific views; on a clear day, the Cheviot Hills, Northumberland’s highest can be seen on the distant horizon. There are many more, but come along to discover them for yourself and take home your memories of a walk along the wilder side of the Bamburgh Coast.
