Visiting Ouseburn with Kids

Seven Stories has launched a pavement cafe in Ouseburn. It looks like it will be a fantastic place to stop off with kids for refreshments or a light bite to eat when visiting the area. 

The new pavement cafe will be open from Thursday - Sunday 11am-4pm and will serve traybakes, muffins and cakes based on favourite children's stories. 

You can expect barista service with a range of hot and cold drinks and there is limited outdoor seating (no bookings) or you can take away and enjoy on nearby grass/picnic tables in Ouseburn or walk along the Quayside. 

The museum/gallery aspect of Seven Stories is currently closed but their fantastic children's bookshop is open for business. It has recently had a bit of a makeover too and is a lovely place to browse for that special gift. 

Obviously, check Seven Stories website and social media before heading out to check for any changes to avoid disappointment. 

We love visiting Ouseburn with our children and I am pleased to see that Ouseburn Farm across the road from Seven Stories has now re-opened. Tickets are now free but should be booked in advance. You can read about our visit last summer and a little about what to expect and book farm tickets here (nb there is no longer a £3.50 entry fee but donations are welcome). 

Ouseburn Farm 

A little walk around Ouseburn to see the Street Art, a browse of the Seven Stories Children's Bookshop and a themed cake from the cafe plus a little visit to Ouseburn Farm sounds like a lovely way to spend an morning / afternoon to me.  

There are several options for parking around Ouseburn, we always park in Ouseburn Central Car Park on Foundry Lane (follow the signs and turn left and left again as you pass the Rolls Royce Garage / the Cookhouse). Use postcode NE6 1LH. Seven Stories is just across the small bridge and you can see it from the car park. Parking is currently 40p per hour for a maximum of 4 hours and free on Sundays. 

Ouseburn is also accessible by public transport and you can walk along the Quayside from Newcastle City Centre.
