The town is on the England Coastal Path which is being developed nationally, for completion by 2020. Work on the local sections has bene completed. The market towns of Morpeth & Alnwick, Berwick & Hexham area also only an easy drive away. The railway station at Morpeth connects regularly to Newcastle & Berwick.

The Alnwick Garden & Castle, Bamburgh & Lindisfarne are just some of the many attractions that are easily accessible by car. The relatively new addition of Northumberlandia, a landscaped sculpture (the naked lady) is also worth the short drive on a clear day to experience the amazing views of Northumberland & Tyneside.
