Warkworth Castle was originally constructed as a wooden fortress, some time after the Norman Conquest. Once home to the powerful Percy family who now reside in Alnwick Castle, Warkworth was and remains one of the largest and most impressive fortresses in North East England.
During this period the castle was rebuilt with sandstone curtain walls and greatly reinforced. The imposing keep, overlooking the village of Warkworth was added during the late 14th century. It was refurbished, with much refaced stonework, by the Dukes of Northumberland in the late 19th century.

Lindisfarne Castle has provided a shooting location for a number of films, notably Roman Polanski’s The Tragedy of Macbeth (1971) in which it stands in for Glamis Castle. The castle’s use in Macbeth inspired the producers of Cold Feet to use it as an exterior filming location in one episode, though interior scenes were shot at Hoghton Tower.
