Seven Stories, The National Centre for Children's Books details...

One of the things to do in Tyne and Wear is a visit Seven Stories, The National Centre for Children’s Books, located in Newcastle in a seven-storied, former Victorian warehouse.

Seven Stories is the national home of children’s books. Step inside and discover how books spark the imagination and creativity, with exhibitions, events, workshops and activities for all ages, bringing children’s books to life.

Exhibitions are created from original artwork and manuscripts and appeal to everyone.

Children will love the interactive Story time sessions running several times throughout the day and feature popular nursery rhymes and picture books. For example Story Stompers will appeal young children over 2 years where they can delve into their favourite books and make music and movement. In Super Story Explorers 3-6 years children can join some wild adventures into the woods, the bottom of the ocean or in your very own space rocket! Check out the regular events, activities and workshop sessions on the website.

Entry to the museum is free. This includes all galleries and the coffee shop, cafe and bookshop. Events and workshops are ticketed and are booked via the website or on your visit.
