The Black Gate was added to Newcastle's Castle between 1247 and 1250 and formed an additional layer of defence in front of the earlier north gate. Following refurbishments, the building now has an external lift clad in wood allowing visitors access to three levels, a reception area, shop and toilets NZ2563 : Black Gate, Newcastle upon Tyne

The Close and Side are two of Newcastle’s remaining medieval streets.
