Craster Tourist Information Centre is situated in the Quarry Car Park just at the entrance to Craster village. The village of Craster is on the Northumberland coast, 6 miles northeast of Alnwick. Craster has always been known as a fishing village, with its traditional fishing boats (or cobles) bringing in a variety of fish including herring. The small harbour was built in the nineteenth century for the herring fishery. Perhaps it is most famous for the curing sheds that produce the famous Craster kippers . The spectacular Dunstanburgh Castle is reached via a short coastal walk from Craster car park.
