What can you expect from this walk?

The Valley is often considered the birthplace of Newcastle's industrial revolution, once a thriving area, full of successful enterprises that surrounded the Ouseburn river and employed thousands of local residents.

By the mid-20th century, Ouseburn suddenly became comparatively derelict. However, by the 1980s, creatives, musicians and artists began to take over empty and neglected buildings, laying foundations for the version of Ouseburn we recognise.

Today, the Ouseburn Valley is a booming urban village, home to a conservation area and considered Newcastle's Cultural Quarter.

The Back to the Future walk explores key locations which best encapsulate this evolution. It's the perfect activity for locals and visitors alike!
