Ouseburn, in Newcastle Upon Tyne, has a long and very rich culture history – known as the cradle of the industrial revolution in the city. Due to its location on the River Tyne, barges would actually load goods and coal from Ouseburn to then go on to ship around the world!
More recently, Ouseburn has become a vibrant, creative community in the North East and it is actually home to many creative hotspots.
Whatever your age or interests, Ouseburn has something for everyone. If your family is looking for a day out then it is worth checking out the Seven Stories, The National Centre for Children’s Books. It is the perfect place for you and your family to immerse yourselves in the world of books and storytelling. Believe it or not, Ouseburn is actually home to its own farm – just a mile from Newcastle City Centre. At the farm, you can see a variety of different types of animals, such as chicks and lambs to piglets and calves, plus many more! The Biscuit Factory is the UK’s largest independent art, craft and design gallery set in the heart of Newcastle’s cultural quarter.
