Warkworth is a village in Northumberland, England. It is probably best known for its well-preserved medieval castle, church and hermitage. The population of Warkworth was 1,493 in 2001. The village is situated in a loop of the River Coquet, about from the Northumberland coast and lies on the main A1068 road. It is north of Newcastle, and about south of the Scottish border. An ancient bridge of two arches crosses the river at Warkworth, with a fortified gateway on the road mounting to the castle.

Warkworth is popular with visitors because it has a castle, church, hermitage, walks by the River Coquet, and is close to the Northumberland Coast, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). It is twinned with Warkworth, New Zealand.
