Warkworth Hermitage

Continue your adventure by taking a walk half a mile up river followed by a boat trip to discover the 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.

The Hermitage is open on certain days. Check Hermitage opening times.
