Kids' Castle Adventures Tour

Kids' Castle Adventures Tour
We are excited to welcome young warriors to test their strength in an activity packed summer evening at Newcastle Castle.


1 Hour and 30 Minutes

Enjoy an activity driven, after hours visit to the Castle Keep. Your guide will lead you around the atmospheric Keep, where you will hear stories from the castle's past and take part in a range of activities. Will you dare to brave a visit to the castle dungeon? Can you triumph against renowned knight Sir Aymer de Atholl in combat? Test your aim as an archer with an archery challenge!

After your challenges, take a break in the Tavern, where you will receive a range of treats from hot chocolate and juice to biscuits and cake. We will then head up to the roof to take in the amazing views of Newcastle, where, in full sight of the city, the children will be knighted and receive a certificate of knighthood.


This is an activity trail of a Grade 1 listed historical monument, so please wear suitable footwear. Unfortunately the Castle Keep is not a fully accessible building, so you will need to be able to manage a significant number of stairs during the event. The Castle Keep will be cold, so don't forget your coat! The castle does not have any toilet accessibility, so the nearest one is in the Bridge Hotel.

We recommend this activity for children ages 7+, though younger children are also welcome!

Children must me accompanied by an adult at all times during the tour
