An imposing castle; even the ruined sections give you an excellent understanding of its history. Visited yesterday afternoon with our usually boisterous dog. He loved exploring as much as we did and although I was using a stick I managed to get around the site due to sturdy handrails and sensible steps. We spent a lovely afternoon here and the scenery is wonderful; The car parking fee is taken off your entrance fee to the Castle - so a very reasonable cost. The staff in the shop weren't just knowledgeable about the Castle and their products, they were also very kind and approachable. A bowl for dogs to drink out of was appreciated; the doggy treats they keep behind the counter for well-behaved dogs even more so. Highly recommended and a must if you have inquisitive children (and/or dogs).

Warkworth Castle is a must-do experience when visiting Northumberland. It is a beautiful imposing ruin with lots of nooks and crannies to roam around, great views of the River Coquet and the village. I love it!

After a walk along the banks of the river Coquet visited the castle. Pleasantly surprised that the price of the parking was deducted from the entrance fee of £5 each. A glorious sunny day enhanced the walk in and around the castle.Well worth the price and the castle with the views across to Amble were stunning.

Well worth a visit. There was a 'Murder Mystery' type thing going on whilst we were there which was great fun.

We visited while on holiday in the town so just had a short walk to this wonderful castle. The castle itself while ruined has many rooms which are accessible and our children loved going through all the rooms imagining what it would have been like to live there. The day we visited there was an event by the Plantangenet Medievel Society with dancing and combat re-enactments and this just added to the wonderful atmosphere of the castle, Well worth the visit!
