Ouseburn Secondary Seven Stories, The National Centre For Children's Books, Ouseburn

Ouseburn Valley has a long and rich history.

Once known as the cradle of the industrial revolution, recent regeneration has transformed Ouseburn to become Newcastle’s cultural quarter and one of the most vibrant creative communities in the North East. Home to artists, musicians, designers, printmakers, brewers and even sheep, Ouseburn is a thriving community that attracts an eclectic crowd.

During the day, Ouseburn is bustling with families looking for things to do in the valley. From the charming, community-run urban farm – Ouseburn Farm – which encourages visitors to get up close to a range of friendly farmyard residents to Seven Stories, The National Centre for Children’s Books which is a must-see attraction which welcomes hundreds of visitors each day to explore original exhibitions dedicated to the art of literature. Explore the creative process behind writing, illustrating and publishing books or take part in lively events and storytelling performances. The Seven Stories Bookshop and café are a free stopping off point for visitors to Ouseburn who are looking for a coffee break or head to Ernest to tuck into the best brunch in the Valley.

OUSEBURN secondary Hannah L The Ship Inn, Ouseburn

At the heart of Ouseburn is the entrance to the Victoria Tunnel, an underground wagonway that was once used to transport coal to the Quayside for transportation and later was used as an air raid shelter during the Second World War. Visitors can now don a hard hat and take fascinating guided tour from one of the knowledgeable volunteers or enjoy a range of imaginative events include intimate concerts and wine-tasting, in collaboration with its luxurious neighbour Hotel Du Vin.

If art and culture is your thing, be sure to check out The Biscuit Factory, Northern Print or the hidden artist studios dotted around the Valley. Housed in a converted Victorian warehouse, The Biscuit Factory holds regular exhibitions and events and even has its own artisan-style restaurant; one of many great eateries in Ouseburn.

By night – experience some of the best live music from big name bands, independent local musicians and indie DJs at The Cluny, one of Ouseburn's best pubs. Crawl from pub to pub and enjoy the informal charm of some of Newcastle’s best pubs and breweries frequented by locals like The Cumberland Arms, Tyne Bar, The Ship Inn and Free Trade.
