Newcastle has a fascinating history and the evidence is everywhere – visit Roman Ruins at Hadrian’s Wall, the medieval Castle Keep in the City Centre, see Grade I listed Jacobean buildings, marvel at the Georgian architecture on Grey Street and Greys Monument or brave the Victoria Tunnels in the Ouseburn area – used as an air raid shelter in WWII.
