Visible for miles around, Bamburgh is dominated by its imposing castle.
Having been extensively restored, first by Lord Crewe in the 1750's and more recently by the first Lord Armstrong at the end of the 19th century.
It is open to members of the public throughout the year.
St Aidan's church dates back to the 13th Century, replacing the previous wooden building.
The origins date from 635 AD when St Aidan came to Lindisfarne from Iona.
Grace Darling is one of the most famous inhabitants of Bamburgh.
With her father she saved many lives from the wreck of the SS Forfarshire in 1838.
She died from Tuberculosis in 1842, at the early age of 26 and lies at peace in the grounds of St Aidan's church.
Opposite St Aidan's church is the Grace Darling Museum, maintained by the RNLI Heritage Trust.
This £1.5 million project took two years to complete, and features a new frontage, improved access and a more spacious interior with the museum now covering two floors.
As before, the main feature of the museum is the original 21 foot rescue craft, a Northumberland fishing coble rowed by Grace and her father.
The village has gift shops, grocer, butcher, newsagent, plant nursery, restaurants, pubs and a cricket pitch, all within walking distance of the village green, the visitor will find much of interest here.
