Warkworth Castle

Photobucket
Last Sunday was spent browsing the ruins of Warkworth Castle on a cold and blustery day in Northumberland in the North East of England. I feel so lucky to have these amazing English Heritage, Harry Potter-esque properties on my doorstep, it's quite amazing to think how people used to live hundreds of years ago.

  4. I love going to Warkworth and the castle. My sister and I used to play hide and seek in the castle...did you find all the secret stairwells? I want to visit very soon again. I love the housing in Warkworth especially the first property right behind the castle.

    Your photography is amazing and has inspired me for photography ideas next time I visit.

  5. I also live in the north east and I love how easy it is to escape and drive to places like this. I get married next month and for our mini moon we have booked a boat house in the middle of Northumberland before our big holiday in the summer. I can't wait to totally chill and explore places full of history just like this. X

  8. Ahhh such beautiful photos - it's just a shame I haven't been back to Warkworth Castle since I was a kid as we would go there EVERY school trip (except when we alternated with Bede's World...) and it was always rainy when we went, so I only associate the place with being wet and miserable.

    I'll have to man up and give it another visit! :) xx

  11. Beautiful! I love exploring old ruins. Sadly we don't have very many in New Zealand (because this country was barely colonised 150 years ago) but we still have a few exciting spots. I love seeing the photos from your day trips.

  18. It reminds me of the time I went to Warwick Castle. The stairways were incredibly narrow(my we have grown!)and I walked about 1000 steps by the end of the day.

    Are you a member of the National Trust? I'm most likely going to move the UK, so a membership might be in order!

  21. These are probably my favourite posts of yours - I just love exploring an old building and seeing them through someone else's eyes is almost as good. Gorgeous photos as ever!
