Overview

As seen on ITV1's Tales from Northumberland with Robson Green.

Be king or queen for the day in this mighty Northumberland fortress crowning the hilltop above the River Coquet.

Enjoy a day out and see how the powerful Dukes of Northumberland, the Percy family lived. Explore the floors and rooms in the magnificent cross-shaped keep which was once home to 'Harry Hotspur', immortalised as a rebel lord by Shakespeare, and bane of Scottish raiders. See spectacular river and coastal views from the castle walls.

Continue your adventure by taking a walk half a mile up river followed by a boat trip to discover Warkworth Hermitage, a religious building carved out of the rock.

Enjoy the peaceful setting of this hidden gem, which was probably built as a private chapel for the first Earl of Northumberland.
