Delve into the City’s History on this Newcastle Sightseeing Tour

Visit the Castle which gave the city its name: Newcastle’s Castle.  From the Roman foundations of the fort of Pons Aelius to the modern-day Museum, the Castle is a must-see for any visitor to Newcastle.


Visit the family-friendly historic attraction to walk in the steps of the people who lived and died in the shadow of Newcastle Castle.

Steeped in history this imposing Norman fortress, in the centre of Newcastle upon Tyne, is a rugged reminder of northern England’s turbulent history – from war with Scotland to local revolts and politics. This was no baron’s stately home. Newcastle Castle is a grim reminder of royal power, 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.

A great visit no matter the weather, you can easily reach the Castle by car, bike, rail and public transport.
