Situated in the Ouseburn Valley in Newcastle, Seven Stories is the National Centre for Children's Books. We bring together original manuscripts & artwork from some of this country's best loved children's books. Seven Stories creates an ever changing story book landscape of exhibitions, activities & events for all ages, designed to inspire ideas of the imagination. To take you into the magical world of children's stories. How books are made, where they come from and how we can enjoy and share them. It's a great day out for the whole family!

Seven Stories is a charity - all the money we raise is used to save, celebrate and share the wonderful world of children's books. 

Everyday is Story Time 

We love sharing and telling stories - and the choices are endless! Every day our storytellers captivate young and old with tales from our favourite books (10.30am, 12.30pm and 3.30pm).
