The remains of the Town Walls encompass Chinatown and the remains give some idea of the scale of the city's defences.

Lengthy piece of the original town wall from the medieval era in the 13th-15th centuries. Several towers are still there and were in use for several centuries afterward. Great informational signs. Nice walk along the one side--the other is an alley in use by local...More

We spotted this unexpected landmark while walking to Chinatown via West Walls Lane. Nice to see some retained history in the city. It’s a shame more of it isn’t still preserved.

Opens at 12 but filled up quickly. Newcastle home match made it a bit busy and noisy but atmosphere was good. Enjoyed the afternoon drinking and socialising. Some members had food and the empty plates suggests it was good.

If you're in the city centre area, you'll be seeing many parts of the old town walls. There are many shortcuts by stairs through the walls worth exploring. Some are quite steep but all take you back in history hundreds of years! Truly fascinating! Worth...More
