Ouseburn is less than 1.5 miles from the Central Station in Newcastle upon Tyne, and can be accessed by public transport, walking and cycling as well as by car.
On foot and by bicycle
The riverside path alongside the Ouseburn for pedestrians and cyclists will be temporarily open for Ouseburn Festival. Most of the other usual routes should be open. There will be additional temporary bicycle parking at Malmo Quay and probably outside Ernest, Boyd Street.
The Q2 Quaylink bus connects the valley to the central part of Newcastle’s Quayside where you can continue up to the city centre, or change to the Q1 service to reach Gateshead Quayside and town centre.
The No.1 bus service connects from Central Station and the main shopping area in Newcastle to the top end of Ouseburn around City Stadium and the Biscuit Tin studios, with just a short walk to the Biscuit Factory and Holy Biscuit.
