Ouseburn Valley Newcastle upon Tyne

We have uploaded a video that describes some of what’s going in the Ouesburn Valey area of Newcastle upon Tyne…

Since regeneration of the Ouseburn Valley accelerated in late 90′s, the area has quickly gained a reputation for being one of the coolest parts of Newcastle. Built beneath the arches of six bridges, the valley is packed with artists studios, independent music venues and craft-ale serving pubs, nestled among the occasional recording studio or vintage furniture store.

Since 2003, over fifty aging buildings in the Ouseburn have been renovated, providing the valley with distinctive architecture from the Toffee Factory to the Seven Stories, 30 Lime Street, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 2PQ. In 2013, there are currently over 360 businesses employing over 2000 members of staff in the Ouseburn, and over 150 artists studios which are home to furniture makers, painters, designers and print makers.

Meanwhile events including the annual Ouseburn Open Studios and Ouseburn Festival help draw in around 4,000 visitors every year.

Simon Bonnin from The Ouseburn Coffee Company, Foundry Lane Studios, Foundry Lane, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE6 1LH set up a roastery in the Ouseburn with brother Pete and business partner Alaric Hammond in 2012, said “It probably is the coolest place in Newcastle. There’s so much going on here. It’s a great place for business start-ups. People can be more creative and go out on a limb perhaps because it is that eclectic environment.”

Andrew Straw from The Cycle Hub, Quayside, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE6 1BU set up his cycle repair and tour business in 2012, commented “We’re really excited to be in the Ouseburn. It’s definitely the coolest place in Newcastle.
