Bus Travel in Newcastle-under-Lyme
A charming market town that's also a groundbreaker
The charming market town of Newcastle-under-Lyme grew up around its now ruined medieval castle. The historic market dating from 1173 still takes place on the High Street. For more heritage, head to the beautiful parkland of Brampton Park and the Borough Museum and Art Gallery with its replica Victorian street. Love theatre? You must visit the New Vic Theatre, Europe's first purpose-built theatre-in-the-round. The town continues this innovative spirit by hosting events such as the Lymelight Festival, Jazz and Blues Festival and the circus-themed Homecoming Festival.
