New for 2023

Striking new sculptures have been installed in the castle grounds to create a series of interactive trails which 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.

New information have also been placed in and around the castle to help better tell the fascinating story of Warkworth. You can also pick up an updated audio guide which will take you to all the nooks and crannies of the castle.
