The village is surrounded on three sides by the River Coquet and is dominated by Warkworth Castle. The main street in Warkworth is also the A1068 trunk road and is called Castle Street – the castle is located at the top of the street which is a steep hill.
At the bottom of the hill lies the historic centre of the village nestled around the market place and church. In this village centre, which is a popular tourist destination there are numerous public houses, cafes, restaurants, shops and B&B’s as well as private residences.
Warkworth also has a newer residential area to the south of the village which is centred around Morwick Road.
