The Ouseburn Valley is many things to many people. Whether you enjoy the Ouseburn for its bustling alternative music scene, its flourishing creative networks, or its abundant local history and heritage, the valley has something for everyone.
Over the last twenty years the Ouseburn Valley has undergone a dramatic transformation from post-industrial wasteland to Newcastle’s foremost cultural and creative quarter, helped in large part by a raft of investment and community-led regeneration.
Now thriving social and cultural venues exist harmoniously alongside reminders of the area’s industrial heritage, such as the Glasshouse Bridge (built in 1878), the old flax chimney outside the Cluny and the recently refurbished Ouseburn Railway viaduct.
It is this interaction between past and present that gives the area its energy and charm, and makes it such an exciting place to live, work or play.
