Fodor's Review

Overlooking the Tyne River, the remains of the Norman castle recall the city's earlier status as a defensive stronghold. Built in 1080, this was the "new castle" that gave the city its name. The stone keep and gatehouse are all that remain; although the effect is somewhat diminished by the railroad viaduct that thoughtlessly separates the two. At this writing the castle was being turned into a new interprative center for the city; it should be open for 2016 but call ahead to check.
