Newcastle Castle, a historic fortress perched atop a hill, commands a panoramic view of the city and its river. This iconic medieval structure comprises two main sections: the Castle Keep and the Black Gate. The Castle Keep, built by the Normans in the 12th century, offers a journey through time with its exhibits on history and heritage. The Black Gate, a 13th-century gatehouse, stands as a testament to the city’s defensive past. Exploring the castle grounds, visitors can absorb tales of battles, sieges, and medieval life while savoring the breathtaking vistas that merge history and modernity.
