  • Newcastle Castle 

    Newcastle’s Castle Keep and Black Gate have reunited as a combined visitor attraction.  Newcastle Castle is where the city forged its development, identity and significance in British history.

    Consisting of two buildings, the Castle Keep and Black Gate miraculously survive and are open to the pubic following a Heritage Lottery funded refurbishment.

    Visitors can 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.

    Newcastle’s most historic buildings, the Castle Keep and its 13th century gatehouse the Black Gate, were once part of a much larger fortress.  Given its tumultuous history, it is miraculous that so much of Newcastle’s castle has survived intact.

    Today you can explore the ancient passageways and chambers where Kings walked and villains were imprisoned. Find the marks left by the inhabitants through the ages and learn the fascinating story of the Castle Garth community which grew up around the ruins.  The two buildings that remain were cut off from each other by the Victorian railways of the 19th century – an unfortunate side effect of the North East’s trailblazing role in the Industrial Revolution.

    Exhibits guide visitors through the Castle’s history over the years: from settlement in Roman times, to medieval stronghold, use as a modern day museum and everything in between.

    Simply purchase your ticket from the Castle’s all-new Black Gate reception to begin your journey.
