An Afternoon at Warkworth

An Afternoon at Warkworth
 This was a spontaneous trip that was 'to be continued' from my morning trip to Amble, we decided to spend the afternoon at Warkworth which was a short drive from Amble. Originally we wanted to visit the castle that you were able to see from the seafront of Amble but that lead onto doing other things like shopping and window browsing around the little street!

I think I had my Harry Potter head on when I saw this castle, even though I am aware Harry Potter was not filmed here it did influence me to watch Harry Potter when I got home! If you like architecture and historic buildings then definitely come up to Warkworth. My dad is really big with history so he was dishing the dirt on this castle to me which was quite interesting. Stuff like this really fascinates me I think I mentioned this in my Edinburgh blog post here too when visiting the castle. After we had a good look at the castle we decided to head back down the street and check out a few shops.

Places like this are great for finding those unique home-ware bits from random little shops that are only in one small area. We had a wonder through various shops one being a more of a travel gift shop where we were surrounded by chutneys and jams. Yummy! Once we finished having a look at a couple of shops we decided to cut though a little lane and look at the river.

We saw a couple of very pretty, big cottages/homes where we were yet again imagining living in one of those. It must be a nice site to open your window and see a river with lots of swans and herons, a bit peaceful. One thing that really stood out to me was this lovely, little couple who were sat on a bench for ages talking and watching the view. This was lovely, I don't know why I took a photo of it but things like that really make me smile and make me want to live like that when I am at that age.

After taken numerous photos and taken in lots of views we decided to make our way back home. Warkworth is a lovely little place to go to if you want to visit a bit of architectural history! it is quite a small area but its incredible beautiful to visit.

  4. Aw, I know what you mean about seeing old couples sat talking. It warms my heart to see a happy couple appreciating the world around them and still finding the time to appreciate each other - gives the world hope, huh? :)

  10. That looks gorgeous! I totally get what you're saying about having your "Harry Potter had on" too... when I was in college, on pretty snowy days I used to walk around with the HP soundtrack playing for the same reason.

    Sounds like a super lovely day! A visit to Warkworth would be totally rad one sometime. Have a good week!

  11. It looks gorgeous! I love that kind of lovely countryside landscapes. We don't have that kind of villages in Finalnd and maybe that's why I love them so much.
