Peek into the past

Newcastle wasn’t always the party city of the UK. Use your trip to delve into our city’s history

Newcastle Castle

In the centre of Newcastle city stands the tower of the structure which gave the city its name. The castle Keep and its gatehouse were once part of a much grander structure, and home to Reigning Kings and imprisoned villains. Today visitors can walk the halls following guiding exhibits and take in some breath-taking views of the city.

The castle is open 7 days a week and tickets start from just £4

Beamish Open-Air Museum

Just 20 minutes out of the city centre will transport you back in time at the world famous Beamish open-air museum, take the tram or walk along the cobbles to the 1900’s town and pit village, explore the Edwardian Rowley train station or take a trip to the 1940’s far. With fun for all ages this is not to be missed. Also pay once and get a year’s pass so you can head back on your next visit.

Tynemouth Priory

About 20 minutes east of the city, you’ll get to experience the amazing Northern coastline with the Tynemouth Priory remains dominating the headland. Discover its story as it moves from Anglo-Saxon settlement to a monastery to a coastal defence. Finish off the day with some traditional fish and chips or enjoy a picnic on the beach

Open 7 days a week and prices start from as little at £3.50
