Warkworth is one of Northumberland's most attractive villages. An easy stroll down the hill and over the original 17th century bridge spanning the Coquet River will take you to the centre of the village where you will find an interesting selection of shops and galleries, teashops, pubs and restaurants. Just a short drive, or a twenty minute stroll, is a magnificent award winning beach.
The Coquet River wraps round three sides of Warkworth village while the massive keep of Warkworth Castle dominates the high ground. The castle is the ancient seat of the Percy family, Earls and Dukes of Northumberland. Today the castle is owned by English Heritage and is open to visitors throughout the year. At the other end of the village is St Lawrence church, a Norman church with a dominating spire of nearly 100 feet in height. There has been a church on this site for around 1,200 years - the first record dates from 737AD.
From the village you can take a walk along the river or hire a boat and row upstream. Warkworth Hermitage, a chapel carved in stone and reachable only by boat, is located on the far side of the river. It commemorates the deaths of the brother and beloved lady of a knight named Sir Bertram, who is said to have created the chapel and remained there the rest of his life.
Warkworth is an ideal base to explore Northumberland and is close to the towns of Amble with its marina and Alnwick, famous for its Castle (aka Hogwarts) and the Alnwick Garden.
