Steeped in history this imposing Norman fortress, in the medieval centre of Newcastle, is testament the region's turbulent history. The castle is a grim reminder of royal authority where armies gathered, and criminals were imprisoned and executed. It is where the story of Newcastle began, the reason the city got its name and has the most commanding views over the city and the River Tyne.
