Warkworth to Craster, Northumberland Coast Path – Stage 2.

Walking the magnificent Northumberland Coastal Path from Cresswell to Berwick-upon-Tweed.  This is episode 2 of 6. 

Produced in partnership with the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and Northumberland Coast Path.



The Northumberland coast offers some of the finest coastal walking in Europe. The Northumberland Coast Path follows this stunningly beautiful coastline for 100 kilometres (62 Miles) from Cresswell in the south to Berwick-upon-Tweed in the north. Alongside sandy beaches, over rocky headlands, past dramatic castles and through attractive coastal villages, the Northumberland Coast Path offers a constantly changing landscape which is a pleasure to explore.


Stage 2 – Warkworth to Craster (13.5 miles)

Starting from the beautiful market town of Warkworth, head north towards the Medieval Bridge, and over the Coquet River then cross the A1068 (Video 2:50) towards Warkworth Beach.  After reaching the beach, we are offered a great view of the dunes, following the signs we head north, with the sea on our right and the golf course on our left.

As we continue north, passing through Birling Carrs Caravan Park we have a great view of the 1.5 mile long beach, with Alnmouth in the distance (Video 5:00).  The path takes us to Waterside Cottages (Video 6:30).  The path now takes us inland, around the River Aln estuary.  There is a dedicated walking/cycle path along the side of the A1068 (Video 6:50).

Arriving at Alnmouth, we cross the River Aln, and walk down the northern side of the estuary (Video 8:00) before arriving at Alnmouth (Video 8:30).  At the top of the High Street we turn right and pick up the path once again on our left (Video 9:15).  This path gives us some great views of the coast, as we pass Alnmouth Golf Club House (11:30), on our way to Boulmer (Video 13:00).

Leaving Boulmer, continuing north along the coastal path, we now pass many bays and coves, crossing the footbridge (Video 14:50) at Iron Scars on our way.  Eventually we reach Cullernose Point (Video 16:50), where we can see Craster a mile ahead of us, and the conclusion of Stage 2 of the walk from Cresswell to Berwick upon Tweed.
