The Castle is a Scheduled Ancient Monument with several upper storeys which are not accessible to all visitors. There is a specially designated buggy parking area in the Black Gate; taking these into the Castle Keep is not advised.
The Black Gate has been fitted with ramps and an external lift. This allows access to the upper-levels of the building, including a Reception, Gift Shop and exhibition space. The building also has an adapted accessible toilet on its first floor.
The Keep, unfortunately, has very limited access, however a video tour of the Castle is available on the ground floor.
There is no on-site parking at Newcastle Castle, however there are numerous car parks and on-street parking available in Newcastle City Centre.
Those who suffer from claustrophobia, vertigo or a nervous disposition: please contact us or speak with a member of staff in our Black Gate Reception before climbing the stairs!
