Overview
Discover some of Newcastle’s top sights—and learn about the city’s spooky legends, sordid criminals, and other uncanny happenings—on this two-in-one walking tour. Meet your guide right in the city center, and set off: discover the medieval Castle Keep, the historical buildings on Dean Street, Earl Grey’s Monument, and more.
