A school visit to Warkworth Castle is a unique experience. 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, but what was life like for those living in a castle 600 years ago? With it's rich and colourful history and it's magnificent cross shaped keep, your class can become a King or Queen for the day and explore the development of the castle from Medieval times to the present day.
