Take a walk along Blyth's South Beach

This coastal Northumberland town has been a port for centuries - but it's the golden beach that keeps tourists coming back year after year. South Beach, which stretches for Nearly 3 miles from the south of the town, is lined with colourful beach huts that can be rented. Near to the beach are play areas for children and spots to grab some traditional fish and chips.

Learn about the local heritage

Blyth's port grew considerably in the 18th century and with it came the development of the surrounding areas. A highlight is the High Light Lighthouse. Built in 1888, it is over 18 metres tall. Elsewhere, the former Blyth Battery coastal defence is now the Military and Local Heritage museum. Or head outside of town for Seaton Delaval Hall, an English Baroque country house.

Try local produce at Blyth's many markets

As a market town, Blyth really shines. Market day doesn't just come once a week but three times - on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. These regular events are a great place to try local produce or find a bargain at the flea market. There's also a new monthly Artisan market, taking place on the second Saturday of the month, showcasing locally made goods. Planning a trip to Blyth?
