Ouseburn is to Newcastle what Shoreditch is to London, the Northern Quarter is to Manchester and what Fitzroy is to Melbourne. Newcastle is a pretty lively city with top quality bars and restaurants all over but Ouseburn is the place where it comes together for those that like things a little more alternative.
Ouseburn lies just a short distance to the east of Newcastle’s city centre and is rapidly gaining popularity. Formerly post-industrial wasteland, Ouseburn has been regenerated into what you see today. It’s definitely somewhere where you can spend a full day whether you are wanting a few beers, out for a coffee and cake or are planning a family day out. This is the area of Newcastle that the locals like to keep to themselves. All you really need to know is that it’s my kind of place; urban, quirky and cool. I absolutely love it and I’m sure you will too.
