Discounted visit to the Newcastle Castle

Open 7-days per week, visit this family-friendly historic attraction to reveal the story of how Newcastle began, the reason the city got its name and 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. This was no baron’s stately home. Newcastle 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.

Visitors using their Passport will receive a 20% discount on admission price.
