The Castle Keep

The Castle Keep in Newcastle is one of the finest of its kind surviving in Britain today. It is an ancient monument and a Grade 1 listed building. 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.

Gateshead’s BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art is an art-lover’s dream, whilst Newcastle’s array of riverside bars, pubs, clubs and restaurants, paired with The Sage Gateshead’s diverse programme of musical events, ensure you will be well catered for through daylight to nightlife.
