  Mr Monkey in Newcastle

"It's an impressive ruin!"

Once he got past the gatehouse, Mr Monkey found that someone had hidden a ruined priory inside the ruined castle. And a coastguard station. And a big graveyard, with, amongst many others, the grave of one of the men who buried Sir John Moore after the battle of Corunna.

Tynemouth priory and castle are maintained by English Heritage; you can get the details are at the Tynemouth Priory and Castle page at the the English Heritage website.
