Situated at the mouth of the River Coquet, an area of outstanding natural beauty, Amble started life in Roman times and was developed as a coal port in the eighteenth century. Now the harbour is home to traditional fishing vessels and a modern marina. From the harbour you can see the daily catches of fish being unloaded and view the stunning sight of Warkworth Castle on the horizon.

Beautiful countryside surrounds the town, with the medieval village of Warkworth within walking distance along the Coquet River pathway. Amble's strength lies in its unspoilt beaches and unrivalled countryside, where the community covet their status as 'The Friendliest Port'.
