Newcastle Castle Keep Tour – The gateway to Old Newcastle

Date: 21 April 2016 18:00

Type: Social and Networking

Organiser: Tyne and Wear

Newcastle Castle Keep is a unique visitor attraction, providing an opportunity to search ancient passageways and chambers where Kings walked and villains were imprisoned. Exhibits allow visitors to uncover the changing face of the Castle Keep through the ages; from royal fortress and border stronghold to grim dungeon and teeming slum.

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 Castle Keep and Black Gate.

These two buildings 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 history of the teeming Castle Garth slum tenements and 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…

Cost: £5.00
