Plan a Great Day Out

Edlingham, with its remarkable leaning tower, was recently voted one of the top three castles in Northumberland. Another of the top three is Warkworth Castle, around 20 minutes from Edlingham. This mighty Northumbrian fortress crowns the hilltop above the River Coquet, and was once home to the powerful Percy family. Warkworth also has a Hermitage, accessible by boat during the summer, and has a small shop selling drinks and snacks. 

Head towards the coast and visit the dramatic ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle, which is just over 15 miles away.
