Sculptures and Trails

Follow a series of interactive sculptures and trails around the castle to reveal the lives of people who lived in or near the castle in the early 15th century. Choose your character, from Henry Percy of Atholl to Eleanor Neville: Countess of Northumberland to John del Warderobe: long-serving servant of the rulers of Warkworth, to lead you round the castle.

There are also two new models of Warkworth Castle so you can see how we believe the castle would have looked in its heyday and what it looks like now. See how these were made.
