Lucker is a village in the county of Northumberland in the northeast of England. It is about 5 miles from Bamburgh (known for Bamburgh Castle). Lucker has formed part of the civil parish of Adderstone with Lucker since 1955.

A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Lucker from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:

"LUCKER, a township-chapelry in Bambrough parish, Northumberland; on the Northeastern railway, 3¼ miles SE by S of Belford. It has a station on the railway; and its Post town is Belford. Acres: 1,808. Rated property: £2,460. Population: 281. Houses: 48. The manor belongs to the Duke of Northumberland. Lucker Hall is a chief residence. The living is a [perpetual] curacy in the diocese of Durham. Value: £62. Patron: the Duke of Northumberland. The church is good; and there is a national school."

Lucker was a township in the ancient parish of Bamburgh. It became a separate civil parish in 1866. Lucker absorbed the very small and short-lived civil parish of Hoppen in 1888. From 1894 until 1955 it was part of Belford Rural District. In 1955 the civil parish was abolished and the area was absorbed into the parish of Adderstone with Lucker.
