The Village of Prudhoe

There are many sights to see in this quaint village . Prudhoe Castle has many a story to tell so a family day out to this Northumberland fortress is truly worthwhile. Continuously occupied for over nine centuries it was originally the home of the Umfravilles but was eventually taken over by the famous Percy family who restored it. Surviving two sieges during the 1170s , Prudhoe was the only Northumberland castle to resist the Scots. Visit the family-friendly exhibition to find out all about these developments and more about this long-lived fortress.

 

Discover Thomas Bewick birthplace cottage and farmyard, who was Northumberland's greatest artist: a wood engraver and naturalist who revolutionised print art in Georgian England, with glorious views over the Tyne Valley, plus a traditional 19th-century farmhouse, the later home of the Bewick family, with an unrivaled collection of his work and an exhibition about his life.
