Haltwhistle Partnership

The Haltwhistle Partnership brings together everyone with an interest in the wellbeing of the Haltwhistle area and its communities. We work in an integrated way with the public, private and voluntary sectors and local communities to meet the needs of local people. We own several buildings rented by small businesses and retail outlets as well as residential flats, and operate two community shops on Westgate - a second hand bookshop and a general shop selling donated clothing, toys, bric a brac, children's toys, games, haberdashery, pictures, household goods, jewellery and electrical items. It is an Aladdin’s cave waiting to be explored.

Haltwhistle Tourist Information Centre is located in the heart of Hadrian's Wall Country, and is ideally placed for information on the local heritage sites as well as the rest of Northumberland. The Centre offers details on attractions, transport, accommodation and also sells local gifts and souvenirs.

Address: Mechanics Institute, Westgate, Haltwhistle, NE49 0AX. Tel: 01434 321863
