Newcastle got its name from the "new Castle" founded in 1080.
The present castle keep dates back to the 12 and 13th centuries. The keep dominates what is left of the castle, and there is still a fine Norman chapel to be seen.

Admission is only ?1.50 and worth it for the magnificent views from the battlements.
