Druridge Bay Country Park

Druridge Bay Country Park

Red Row, Morpeth, Northumberland, NE61 5BX

Located on the North East coast this country park is surrounded by woods and meadows and features a large freshwater lake. It’s proximity to the beach means the skies above are dark and star-filled. Overnight camping is allowed with permission and by prior arrangement so for a short trip North from Newcastle makes a great stargazing getaway. The site is often used by Northumberland Astronomical Society for stargazing events.


Druridge Bay Country Park is a private location and is only accessible out of normal hours for stargazing by prior arrangement or when public events are scheduled.
