Described as for all children, I took my 10 year old nephew, and was hugely disappointed. The exhibitions were for kids aged 4 and below. Family pass was on expensive side and we spent no more than 30 minutes at it.

Festivals take place in the holidays when attractions like seven stories are free entry. I have a bookworm daughter and she loves this place. I've paid before, yes it's not cheap. I've been for free a few times too. If you have kids that love reading and learning about authors, visit seven stories. They have different themes on authors and... More

I attended specifically so that my grandchildren could participate in room on the broom, a family favourite. Allowing plenty of time for the 12.45 rendition we went to cafe for around 11.55 and after a long long wait with three children we went to a nearby cafe, therefore missing the show and wasting 19.00 !!! Which was particularly annoying as... More

this is also a national centre for childrens books - the title sound a bit study but it is the most wonderful place - really charming and engaging and if you have kids it is a perfect place to take them to get immersed in the pleasures of reading - the genius bit is that they have story telling sessions...

It's essentially a book shop (which is one of the floors) and the rest of the floors are dedicated to promoting one or two stories. But the displays are hardly worth the amount that you pay to get in, a few dress up clothes, pictures and videos on the walls, the Alice in wonderland display consisted of a stuffed toy... More

Seven Stories is a lovely place to visit for an afternoon. Well laid out it spans seven storeys, as you may imagine, in an old mill. The cafe is basic but the food is tasty and very reasonably priced. The exhibitions are very child oriented with books to read, clothes for dressing up and mini videos to watch. The interesting...

Went here with my 18 month old son and 8 year old niece. This is a lovely place for children who like reading and enjoy different books. My toddler loved running about the different rooms and also playing with the train set. Think he was a bit too young for this attraction. We went as we received vouchers for free... More

Suddenly finding myself and my 3 year old son with nothing to do in Newcastle on a Sunday afternoon, we visited Seven Stories. The 'find us' bit of the website, along with a sat nav, got us straight to the Foundry Lane car park, which was free. Sadly we arrived at 2:45 which really didn't leave us with much time... More

We took our 7 year old grand daughter to Seven Stories today. We had visited previously with our other grand children a few years ago and really enjoyed the experience so we were very disappointed today as there was little to excite the imagination. The displays were nothing exceptional. The story reading rather amateurish. I read a story to my... More
