West Horton is a hamlet in Northumberland, adjoining East Horton. The two villages are in Tilldale, north of the course of the River Till and divided by a minor beck which runs to the river.

A footpath runs up from West Horton north-westwards over Doddington Common, a landscape dotted with the remains of ancient settlement, with several cup-and-ring marked rocks and a stone circle.

The St Cuthbert's Way, having crossed the Till, runs through both West and East Horton before heading north-eastwards, up to the Kyloe Hills on the way to the coast.
