Haydon Bridge is an excellent base for exploring Northumberland, with Hadrian’s Wall, Northumberland National Park and the beautiful North Pennines on our doorstep. Birthplace of renowned Victorian artist John Martin, its countryside helped inspire his spectacular paintings and later the poems of Philip Larkin, who spent many holidays there.

It has been an important crossing of the South Tyne since its first bridge was built in the 14th century and has grown into the only village which truly has the river at its heart. Visitors can stand on the bridge to watch salmon jumping or do the same while enjoying a meal and a drink in our riverside inns.

A good selection of accommodation ranges up to the luxurious yet historic Langley Castle Hotel, a reminder of the area’s turbulent history. Staying in Haydon Bridge gives the visitor easy access to the main attractions of Hadrian’s Wall country while only a short walk from its shops and services and beautiful local countryside.

For those who want to explore on foot, a good range of walks leaflets, including the popular John Martin Trail, are available from the Visitor Information Centre in the Bridge Community Library. And for the more energetic, the annual Haydon Hundred Cyclo-Sportive attracts cyclists from far and wide for a challenging tour of the area’s spectacular countryside.

Haydon Bridge – a real Northumberland village with a warm welcome.
