AUG 2021 – 3.5 Miles – AMBLE TO WARKWORTH (NORTHUMBERLAND)

It has been a while since we last stayed at Northumberland for a break. Whilst up there visiting my sister and in-laws, we went to a small town called Amble.


Total Distance: 3.5 Miles
Highest Point: 79 Feet
Total Realistic Time: ~2 Hours

Amble is a town on the North Sea coast of Northumberland, England, at the mouth of the River Coquet, Coquet Island is visible from its beaches and harbour.

Warkworth is a village in Northumberland, England. It is probably best known for its well-preserved medieval castle, church and hermitage.

We parked at a free car park in the town of Amble, which is by the coast. There are public toilets available in the area with many food/eating places along with gift shops.

Following is the route we took:

We had a look around the little stalls in Amble next to the coast before we had a stroll towards Warkworth Castle in Warkworth.

There is a path along the coast that takes you to Warkworth village.

Here are some photos my sister took throughout the day (thanks for sharing).

Here are some external views of the castle and a cool animal we bumped into along the way.

You walk into the car park area where you also have access to the castle grounds. £3 for car parking. £8.95 entry per person into the castle, which I thought was rather steep. We did not go into the castle, we walked around the grounds towards the village of Warkworth instead.

A few little nik nak shops, eating places, a pleasant area, nice and quiet.

We were going to go into a pub in Warkworth for some food, however inside, it was rather busy and not enough staff. We decided to give it a miss and walk back into Amble to get a bite to eat.

There are a few restaurants, however there were queues at many of them. We ended up at Radcliffes Cafe Bar in Amble which had a table for us for a small bite to eat. We ordered crayfish sandwich with chips, coffees and tea, enough to keep us going.

A great day out with the family with a walk and food at a place we had not been before, it was a nice change.
