Newcastle, Ontario, is located on the shores of Lake Ontario, just 10 minutes east of Oshawa at the intersection of Highway 401 and Highway 115. Part of the Municipality of Clarington, Newcastle consists of two main areas – the Village of Newcastle, which is north of the 401, and the Port of Newcastle, located south of the 401. is a community in the municipality of Clarington in Durham Region, Ontario, Canada. The community inherits the former name of the present-day municipality which it belongs to.
Newcastle is located about 80 km east of Toronto, and about 18 km east of Oshawa and Bowmanville on Highway 401. It is also the southern terminus of Highway 35and Highway 115. It has been named one of the best small towns in Ontario, by Comfort Life, a website for retirement living in Canada. The name "Town of Newcastle" was used from 1973-94 for the municipality now called the Municipality of Clarington. The name was changed in 1994 to alleviate long standing confusion between the municipality as a whole and the community of the same name. The community was commonly known as "Newcastle Village" to distinguish the two. It was also a confusing fact that Bowmanville had a larger population than "Newcastle Village", and it also housed the former Town of Newcastle's municipal offices, causing some to believe the town should have been called "Bowmanville" instead of "Newcastle" during that period.

Newcastle was incorporated as a town in 1856. It remained a small community until the 1990s, when new residential development began and the population quickly swelled. Newcastle had a jail in the late 1800s. Maps of Newcastle from those years have not been discovered. Many have tried to find the location of this jail, but it is believed that it was either demolished or destroyed by the elements. There are jail cells in the Newcastle Community Hall.
Newcastle is surrounded by farms raising cattle, pigs, apples, grain, and corn. The town has a beautiful community hall, donated by the Massey family, one public high school (Clarke), two public elementary schools (Newcastle Public School and The Pines Senior Public School), one Catholic elementary school (St. Francis of Assisi), a post office, churches, a few plazas, several small parks, six restaurants, Tim Hortons, a recreation complex, an ice arena, a new fire hall, two grocery stores ( Foodland and No Frills), professional offices, hardware stores, a marina on Lake Ontario, and a golf course (Newcastle Golf Course).

Shoppers Drug Mart store was built on the main south-east corner of the village in 2010-2011. This location housed many businesses over the last 100-150 including groceries, flower shop, furniture, bakery, woman's dress shop, offices and apartments on the 2nd and 3rd floors. The complete building was torn down and a house behind it to create the new complex in summer of 2010. The demolition was wildly unpopular with residents. The new complex houses the pharmacy, cosmetics, grocery items and other drug store items as well as the post office. Shopper's was at a different location in town previously to the move.
