The Castle Keep, Newcastle upon Tyne was built by Henry II between 1168-1178 and is one of the finest surviving examples of a Norman Keep in the country. It is believed to be extremely haunted. The first castle to be built on the site, the ‘New Castle upon the Tyne’ was founded in 1080 by Robert Curthose, eldest son of William the Conqueror and gives the city its name.
