Newcastle Castle

Newcastle’s Castle Keep and Black Gate have reunited as a combined visitor attraction – Newcastle Castle.

Uncover the changing face of the Castle through the ages: from royal fortress and border stronghold to grim dungeon and teeming slum.

New exhibits allow visitors to experience what life would have been like for inhabitants in two of North East England’s most fascinating historic buildings.
