Newcastle Half Day Tour

Price From: £65

Duration: 4 Hours

Up to eight adults

Take a whistlestop tour and experience a thousand years of history in four hours at Newcastle's cathedral and castle.

Starting as a Roman fort and growing to become one of the major cities of the Industrial Revolution, Newcastle has a fantastic story to tell. You’ll hear all the best bits on this three-hour guided walk of Newcastle, while visiting many of the city’s most significant sites. We’ll take you inside the Cathedral Church of St. Nicholas and then Newcastle’s Castle – both parts of the historic core of the city. Built in 1080 by one of the sons of William the Conqueror, Newcastle’s castle has defended against Scottish attacks, including a failed assault by William Wallace (of Braveheart fame). St. Nicholas Cathedral church is first mentioned in 1092 and developed as the primary parish in Newcastle. This tour is a great way to immerse yourself in the history and sights of Newcastle, to discover how the city has changed the world.
