Welcome to the Ouseburn

This is the place to find out what’s happening in the Ouseburn, one of the most visually attractive, creatively exciting and historically fascinating areas in the North East of England.

Once the cradle of the industrial revolution on Tyneside, the area is once again becoming a vibrant place to live, work and play, thanks to imaginative, culture led regeneration projects and the enthusiasm and commitment of the local community. Now the stunning townscape, set against fields, two rivers and six bridges, is home to artists, musicians, long established as well as newer creative businesses, visitor and educational attractions and, increasingly, residents.

We hope this website will help to keep up the good work, and that you’ll enjoy finding out about the past, present and future of this unique area, whether you’re a visitor, a resident, a business or a developer.
