Castle Keep of North - At Newcastle upon Tyne

Castle keep is a place kids go to in Newcastle. The place is only 5 min walk from my hotel which is named after an Earl Grey apparently.
Terrible fringing with my crappy camera which was brought along for its light weight.
This castle is 2000 years old apparently. Quite incredible to come to think of these rocks surviving this long.

The stairs to the roof was a little similar to the experience of rock climbing. 

4 pounds for the entry fee

King's chamber - quite small and sad looking. I would prefer my hotel room.

The great hall - where the king has his meetings... The top part has a ring of corridor for archers to stand by looking down into the centre of the hall ...
