I loved Warkworth... quaint essential village, waterside river and castle to wander around. Wished we had more time to stay and enjoy it all.

There's plenty to explore at this castle, the keep has numerous rooms and there is also a hermitage (this is now closed for the winter), you could still take a walk by the river though.

We visited towards the end of the day and so found it relatively quiet and peaceful. I'm sure this enhanced our visit. Although small, this castle has plenty to offer adults interested in history and for children (our grandchildren loved exploring the ruins and playing...More

Castle is easy to go round and has plenty to see. Free to English Heritage members and there is a free audio guide which is well worth having. Non members get car park charge taken off entry fee.

Adults are £5.80, children between 5-15 are £3.40, and a family (2+3) is £15.00. The Concession rate is just barely a concession at £5.20. If you have an English Heritage membership, entrance is free. I hope you enjoy it!
