See bridges, monuments, religious buildings, a historic market, the old town wall and, of course, the castle, with plenty of photo opps too.
  • Discover Newcastle’s history on a comprehensive guided walking tour
  • Travel through time from before the Romans to the present day
  • Capture stunning river pictures from the High Level Bridge
  • Numbers are capped at just 15 travelers for a more intimate experience

A walk around Newcastle

A tour that brought the history and buildings to life by a guide that was very knowledgeable about Newcastles history and heritage. If you want to know about Newcastle, this is a great tour to start with

Most Enjoyable Tour!

Our red bearded tour guide treated us to a most informative and enjoyable tour. The weather was unpleasant and we may well have abandoned the tour but it was so engaging we had to stay. We saw and were shown things we would never have found ourselves. And if we did find them we would have left knowing nothing about them. This guy delivers eloquently and fully. He really knows his stuff and it’s clear he thoroughly enjoys what he’s doing. Highly recommended.

Rob was fantastic and full of information. We were stunned with the amount of facts he provided during the tour. My sister and I treat both our grandad to this tour for his birthday and he enjoyed every second. Can’t recommend this tour along with Rob enough!
