Small building with some interesting old photos on the wall. Very small hut though so you might walk past it. Right down by the water. Seating available outside to admire the lovely view.

This unpreposessing hut contains photographs and cuttings of the ferry that used to cross the estuary and the people involved in the Alnmouth fishing history. Worth a look inside as you pass this corner of the town.

Visited Alnmou many years ago and saw a old hut,. Great idea to put it to good use again - interesting.

It was packed with art but so small would not go out of way to visit, it was on the route we were walking and came across it.

I paid a visit to Alnmouth in February 2018 and took in The Ferryman's Hut - a great piece of innovation to put this century old hut into a practical use. Praise due to those who arranged the displays of paintings, drawings, maps and other...More

A step out of the cold into this hut and you realise you have stepped into the tiniest museum. A quaint little find that is definitely worth a look.

Can probably only hold 3 or 4 people at a time but was interesting to read the history and all the little bits and pieces. A lovely little stop off close to the beach.
