Gift shop

The Castle’s gift shop, located inside the Black Gate, offers a wide selection of merchandise relating to Newcastle and its medieval heritage. Located on the first floor, the gift shop is accessible by lift and you don’t need to buy a ticket to be able to browse.

We stock an expanding range of medieval themed merchandise, from pocket money toys to collectible gifts; swords and helmets to dragons and knight figures. You will also find books from local authors, including titles from Tyne Bridge Publishing – the publishing arm of Newcastle Libraries.

We are always keen to support work from local artists and craftspeople and some examples include the local landmark drawings from 'Street Doodler' Sarah Sutherland (based in Tynemouth) and ‘Low Moon Over High Town’ Ben Holland (Newcastle).

For those with a sweet tooth, we sell sweets from Kenspeckle Northumbrian Confectionery; whose ‘Newcastle Coal’ cinder toffee is a best-seller; as well as Fentimans soft drinks.
