An introduction to Alnmouth

Alnmouth is a small, picturesque village situated at the mouth of the River Aln, on the Northumberland coast. It is located within the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which stretches from the Borders in the north to Amble in the south of the region.

Alnmouth is easily accessed by car from the main A1 trunk road, only five miles away and the London, Edinburgh mainline railway station is one mile outside the village.

Other small, attractive villages are just a short distance from Alnmouth.

Therefore, Alnmouth provides the ideal starting point for a number
of walks. The walks are of varying distance, taking in both coast and country. They vary in length from an easy 3/4 mile walk around Alnmouth to a more strenuous walk of 11 miles or so.

Along the way the walker will see historical buildings, wonderful views and plenty of places to picnic. All ages will find something of interest.

Most routes are on footpaths and beaches avoiding roads.
There is also an excellent new cycle route between Alnmouth
and Warkworth.
