Alnwick and Warkworth Castles – The strongholds of the Percy’s of Northumberland
This tour will show you the castles and towns of Alnwick and Warkworth. During their histories, both were the residence of the Percy Family. Alnwick is the current residence of the Percy’s, it has a world-famous poison garden and is often used in film – most famously in Harry Potter. Warkworth is picturesquely sat in a bend of the Croquet River and with one of the best preserved Norman churches in England. This tour will cover both locations and their histories. This tour offers an in-depth view of how the fortresses of this family in the North East developed over the years.
