Corbridge is one of the most attractive of Northumberland towns. With origins from Roman times, the town lies along Hadrian's Wall and the Corbridge Roman Town is one of the attractions along the route. Here you can see the "Corbridge Hoard", an important collection of Roman artefacts which has helped historians understand Roman life. Today, Corbridge has retained its heritage as a bustling town used by locals and visitors for shopping and relaxing. With a good variety of shops, cafes and pubs, Corbridge offers plenty to the visitor all set against a backdrop of attractive architecture.
A walk down to the River Tyne, spanned by a many arched 17th century bridge, provides a good viewpoint of the town, and from here you can walk to the nearby town of Hexham along the riverside. For cyclists, Corbridge is on the National Cycle Network.
