Civic Centre

Newcastle Civic Centre is located in the Haymarket area of Newcastle. It is the main administrative and ceremonial centre for Newcastle City Council. Designed by the city architect, George Kenyon, the building was completed in 1967 and was formally opened by HM King Olav V of Norway on 14 November 1968.

This page has been updated with photos from inside the Civic Centre thanks to a tour taken as part of Heritage Open Days.

Hello and thanks for your compliment on the photos that I take.
I only use a cheap digital camera so the results are not always so good but I reckon that it's hard to take a bad photo of almost anything in our beautiful city. One day I will buy a real camera but the price is beyond me for now!
Make sure you check back for updates in the coming months as the weather improves the amount of pages will increase dramatically.

Also if you want more check out the sidebar as there is plenty of links to local photographers and collections for you to click.

Very impressed with your photos, especially as they're taken on a bog standard digicam.

I've never had a tour of the Civic Centre, but did manage a trip up the tower to see the seahorses and the bells!

Thanks :).

Just looking through this years Heritage Days brochure and it seems that the tour I did of the Civic last year is not available this year.

The only thing on offer in this years events is "Newcastle Civic Centre Banqueting Suite" which was a very small part of last years tour. Although we never went up the tower!
