Spittal is a town in northern Northumberland, England, lying opposite the Tweed from Berwick. Spittal Beach is considered one of the best beaches in Northumberland.
The name derives from a shortened form of "hospital"; a hospital, dedicated to St Bartholomew, was built here in the Middle Ages to take care of lepers. St John's, the parish church, was built in 1867 in the Early English style, its tower being added in 1894. Prior to this, "Spittlers" had worshipped in a stable loft. There is also a nonconformist church, St Paul's, built in 1878. The town has several hotels and guest houses providing bed and breakfast, a town hall, and several shops of different kinds.
