I felt a little out of breath winding my way round all those staircases, but well worth the effort. You need a head for heights, but the views of the Tyne and Newcastle are fabulous from the top. It could do with a little bit more interpretation as I felt quite disorientated at one point, and I'm sure I retraced my steps more than once. In saying that, the chap at the front entrance was very helpful. Personally I think tickets should be available at both the Black Gate and the Keep. I didn't have that much time and felt a bit cross. having to go to the Black Gate to buy a ticket to enter the Keep. What a very strange set up.
