Warkworth Castle & Hermitage
Tel: +44 1665 711423
The magnificent keep of Warkworth above the River Coquet, dominates one of the largest, strongest and most impressive fortresses in Northumberland. The castle's most famous owners were the Percy family, whose lion badge can be seen carved on many parts of their stronghold. Explore the castle through a series of trails following those who lived in and around the castle in Medieval times, and find striking sculptures in the grounds.
On selected days, visitors can take a boat across the river to the late medieval Hermitage, the peaceful chapel of a solitary holy man.
