Summer Walks in the Ouseburn Valley 2017

We'll be planning a new programme for 2018 to offer more opportunities to explore the history, environment and future developments of the Ouseburn Valley with local experts and enthusiasts:

  • Most of the walks begin at 7pm on a Tuesday
  • The meeting point varies, if at the Ouseburn Trust it is at 53/55 Lime Street (opposite Seven Stories)
  • They cost £4 per person (free to Ouseburn Trust members)
  • Places on walks are limited so please book your place in good time.

If you enjoy heritage guided walks take a look at the wonderful programme offered by our friends the Newcastle City Guides 

Meanwhile you can take your own A stroll around the Ouseburn with our self-guided leaflet

Or follow the overland route of the Victoria Tunnel with walks geared to its original use to transport coal, and its re-use as a World War Two air raid shelter:

For families there are some walks particularly suitable for children:

We can also arrange guided walks for groups on specific themes - these are £50 for a 60-90 minute tour for up to 20 people

Ouseburn’s Regeneration story – Dale Bolland shows how Ouseburn has changed from 1980s to the development of mixed-use, slow-burn bottom-up regeneration of the valley over the past 30 years - and where it might go next.

Heritage-themed Regeneration in Ouseburn Mike Greatbatch explains how the promotion and enhancement of the Ouseburn heritage and community history helped to change perceptions of the area and establish Ouseburn as a visitor destination and heritage hot spot.

Ouseburn Heritage - Mike Greatbatch leads a tour illustrating Ouseburn's industrial story and the lives of the  people who worked and lived in the Valley from the 17th to the 20th centuries, this can include specific interests by arrangement.
