The Local Area Guide to living in Prudhoe

Perched in a strategic location overlooking the pastoral Tyne Valley, Prudhoe is a quaint town with a real sense of community. Although many residents commute to the larger cities of Gateshead or Newcastle, Prudhoe is more than just a dormitory town. Pronounced “Pruddah” by its residents, Prudhoe is adjacent to rustic woodlands and the Prudhoe Moor. It’s well known for its castle, which dates back to Norman times, keeping proud watch over the stone-clad town centre. There are a number of period cottages and low stone walls in Prudhoe, giving it a desirably traditional atmosphere.

Shops and markets populate the town centre, particularly along Front Street. Though Newcastle is a stone’s throw away, everything needed is here including a variety of restaurants and takeaways. Prudhoe’s events calendar is filled year-round. A highlight is the Prudhoe Arts Week with its story-telling and live music performances. Glastonbury is another annual event, featuring a mix of local and world-famous musicians in a rural setting.
