Newcastle upon Tyne has gone through many stages in its history as a city, from Roman fortress to a shipping centre from the late 18th to the mid 20th century. The region has thousands of years of heritage which are hinted at by the Castle Keep in the heart of Newcastle City Centre, one of the country's finest examples of a Northern Keep. Attractions such as the 2,000 year old Tynemouth Priory and Hadrian's Wall confirm the region's rich past and complement the offering of museums like the newly refurbished and extended Great North Museum.
