Hamish visited in June 2009 en-route from Scotland to Yorkshire. A small diversion from the A1 made this possible – and it was well worth it. As ever, English Heritage’s people were helpful, one lady was very thorough with her explanations. The site was enjoyed by a number of other dogs (and their owners) during our visit. There’s a good sized car park (useful in Warkworth where parking seems difficult) – a charge is made but is refunded for visitors to the castle. Much of the castle is intact so it is easy to gain a good impression of what it must have once been. Information boards and a good audio tour provide insight to build on the remaining masonry, helping to bring some of the site’s history to life. A good day out – and great way to break a journey.
