Some limited on-street parking is available outside The Vermont Hotel, adjacent to the Castle Keep. The nearest major public car park can be found on Dean Street. Walk out of the car park, cross straight over Dean Street and almost directly in front of you is a small stairway that brings you up into Amen Corner, to the east side of the Castle.

There are numerous other parking facilities, including multi-storey facilities and 48 surface car parks operated by Newcastle City Council. The Quayside's multi-storey car park is approximately 12 minutes’ walk away and can hold up to 500 vehicles.
