ADD TO TRIP


Seven Stories has closed until Sunday 19 April 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Some people say there are only seven stories in the world but a thousand different ways of telling them. Seven Stories is about the thousand ways.

Seven Stories is The National Centre for Children's Books and can be found in the heart of Newcastle's cultural quarter, Ouseburn. The book-lover's paradise is committed to preserving British literature heritage for children and future generations and is guaranteed to spark creativity and imagination in all ages.

The literary museum is a great day out for the whole family in Newcastle where visitors can explore the amazing world of children's books in a number of original exhibitions which display rough drafts, unique manuscripts and original artwork by some of the most prolific authors and illustrators in Britain.

Explore your own creativity through writing, illustration and crafts or uncover a world of storytelling with dressing up and dramatic fun in the Seven Stories theatre. Visit for the day and get hands on with crafts, rediscover your favourite stories or attend an event designed to bring out your inner storyteller. Browse Seven Stories' independent children's bookshop and stop for a Cafe with a great selection of home-cooked food.

Find Seven Stories tucked under the Byker Bridge in Newcastle's Ouseburn Valley, the perfect storybook setting and a brilliant place to explore.

Seven Stories is closed on Mondays during term time.
