Castles

Sat high on a hill overlooking the Coquet River,Warkworth Castle must be one of the prettiest castles in Northumberland and is well worth a visit. The castle and hermitage is owned by English Hertiage and you are invited to come and see how the Dukes of Northumberland once lived. Warkworth Castle was also once the home of the legendary Harry Hotspur who was immortalised by Shakespeare as a rebel lord and bane of the Scottish raiders. You can pick up a free audio tour to discover more about the castle’s fascinating history which spans back more than 600 years.

Coquet as it wends its way round the castle and down towards the sea.

A hidden gem within one of our most loved attractions.
