Had a great experience today learning all about the industrial history and regeneration of Ouseburn Valley. I would very much recommend this walk to anyone who is interested in finding out key facts of the area. Our guide was friendly, helpful and informative. I will definitely be joining one of the others walks on offer.

We'd planned to do this for a while and we're delighted to discover tours are running currently for a single household. We spent a fascinating morning with our guide John, who was extremely friendly and enthusiastic. We learnt so much about the industrial history of the area from back in the late 1700's until quite recently. John was very knowledgeable about the area's interesting buildings, bridges and businesses. The booking process and staff involved were also excellent. We would highly recommend this activity!

A belated thank you for your lovely review. Just after your walk in October the second lockdown happened and walks had to be stopped again. I am pleased to report however that single household walks start again this weekend and fingers crossed we can resume mixed groups soon. The heritage doesn't go away!

Such an informative hour and half tour of an extremely interesting area. I've lived in Newcastle for more than 30 years and only knew a fraction of what David, our guide, talked about and showed us. He was very knowledgeable and covered an extraordinarily diverse range of topics for such a small area, and from all periods of history. Extremely good value, brilliant, and highly recommended.

Thank you for providing us with such a lovely review, they make a great difference during these difficult times. We particularly like it when Newcastle residents still learn something about the city and David, I am sure, will be very pleased to hear you enjoyed the walk.

My partner booked this as a surprise and we spent a very pleasant hour and a half wandering around the Ouseburn with Andrew as our guide. Although we go there fairly regularly, it is generally to enjoy the pubs and as a result we bypass a lot of the history and architecture. We found it very interesting to learn about the people and industry of the area and gain an insight into how things have changed over time. Andrew was happy to answer our questions and his passion for the Ouseburn was apparent. Thank you. The challenge now is to strike a balance between preserving the past and looking to the future.
