During this period the castle was rebuilt with sandstone curtain walls and greatly reinforced. The imposing keep, overlooking the village of Warkworth was added during the late 14th century. It was refurbished, with much refaced stonework, by the Dukes of Northumberland in the late 19th century.

Lindisfarne Castle / Holy island

The castle is located in what was once the very volatile border area between England and Scotland. Not only did the English and Scots fight, but the area was frequently attacked by Vikings.

Lindisfarne Castle has provided a shooting location for a number of films, notably Roman Polanski’s The Tragedy of Macbeth (1971) in which it stands in for Glamis Castle. The castle’s use in Macbeth inspired the producers of Cold Feet to use it as an exterior filming location in one episode, though interior scenes were shot at Hoghton Tower.

Three short films have been produced, showing Spring & Summer, Autumn, and Winter in the wild and unspoilt landscapes of the ‘Secret Kingdom’,

The version here is a flagship version of the films amalgamating them into a 7-minute showcase.  

NNTA Chair Jeff Sutheran said: “We set out to create something visually stunning, to illustrate the unique and beautiful landscapes and wildlife of our area.  Filming across a whole year, looking for specific events such as migrations and breeding seasons, has been an exacting and demanding process.  But now we’re absolutely thrilled with the resulting films, and from those who have seen the final versions there has been one common response – ‘Wow!’”
