Newcastle Castle

The Castle Keep is one of the finest Norman stone castle keeps or donjons surviving in Britain today. It is a scheduled ancient monument and Grade 1 listed building. The Castle Keep is located within the historic Heart of the City. It sits upon ground previously occupied by the Roman fort Pons Aelius, an Anglo-Saxon cemetery and a Norman motte and bailey castle from which the City takes its name. The Castle Keep also boasts an outstanding view of the river and seven bridges from its rooftop.
