Craster

Home of the Kipper

Craster, Northumberland

Craster, Northumberland

The tiny, unspoiled village of Craster is world-renowned as the home of the kipper. Reputedly, Craster kippers are enjoyed by the English Royal family. They’re also exported to lovers of this smoked fish delicacy throughout the world. Craster kippers are still produced in the village by a family-run business. They use traditional oak smoked barrels and are always happy to talk to visitors about their ancient craft.

Nominated in the past for a Google Street Award for best ‘Foodie Street’, Craster is a great place to eat or have a drink. Visitors can also enjoy sea-inspired artwork and crafts in The Mick Oxley Gallery.

There’s a working harbour, a fascinating view – especially in stormy weather – and the village also provides access to a walk along the beautiful Northumberland coastline. The path takes you to nearby Dunstanburgh Castle ruins and the magnificent Embleton Beach.

Craster Tower, an 18th Century mansion with a mid 14th Century Pele Tower, and bird-spotting at nearby Arnold Memorial Nature Reserve make this quiet village a top destination as yet undiscovered by the masses.
