"Just go!! This place is sooooo charming!!!!"

I visited Morpeth on a day trip while I was holidaying in Nelson bay (about 70 km away) and I’m glad I did!
You could be walking down the street 100 years ago time has just stood still in this old world village.
The shops where amazing old toy stores, lolly stores, wine store, antique store bakery etc... the history oozes from the old sandstone buildings even the gutters in the streets are sandstone!

Famous businesses also started out in Morpeth as it was a thriving trade centre in the early and mid 1800’s most notably Soul Patterson Chemists and Arnott’s biscuits.
We went on a horse drawn cart ride through the main streets in town with a lovely German settler named Dieter who stoped and told us of the rich history behind each significant building and landmark.
“Juliet” the 11 year old Clydesdale horse presented an image of yesteryear roaming the streets and the sound of her enormous hoofs pounding the pavement added to the atmosphere and experience.
As a tourist attraction i give this place 10 out of 10!! JUST GO!!

Julietclydesdale Juliet the majestic Clydesdale mare pulling her Carriage is like a vision from the past and the clip clop of her massive feet an echo from days gone by. I’m sure you agree ..Morpeth is in a league of it’s own with Julie roaming the streets.
