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

We arrived just before closing on a Sunday afternoon and were given free entry. We had an hour to do whistle-stop tour of the exhibition floors, which were evocative for the adults and fun (lots of dressing up and imaginitive play) for the children. We even fitted in a quick visit to the craft area. Beautiful building, wonderful staff, shame... More

Visited here on a very wet day. Area is based on 7 floors, with art activities on lower floor - felt these were really geared to much younger children that ours. Staff there were helpful. There were floors devoted to different books and authors, eg, one floor was Angelina, which my child throught too babyish to even look at, so... More

Took our 9 year old grandson who was quite dissapointed, as it seems to cater for younger children of up to about 8 years. The entry fee for adults is far too high, should be at least half the price. Would not recommend it.

We arrived 3:45 in the afternoon, the cost of admission was £20 (2 adults, 2 kids). The bottom floor was a smallish room where kids could create dinosaurs with stencils and colours, and they could make a mask. Another few floors, we missed anything on there as story telling etc ended at 2pm. One room had a wooden railway set... More

We arrived at Seven Stories with four children, ages ranging from 1 to 8. We stayed for over 3 hours! There was loads of fun to be had. We could have easily stayed longer. The children enjoyed seeing the artwork, finding out about the featured stories and dressing up... my 4 year old really liked the red riding hood cape... More

We visited seven stories with our 18 month old not really knowing what to expect. We arrived for story time then went exploring. The exhibitions varied - some with dressing up, some with photo opportunities but to be honest its nice to find somewhere like this which is totally child friendly. I'm sure this place will get better the older... More

Having seen Seven Stories on an episode of Something Special, and only living in Sunderland, I couldn't wait to take my girls. Seven Stories is a bit of an exaduration. Floor one was the buggy park, and an area reserved for schools. Floor two was the cafe. Floor three was the entrance and bookshop, which was well stocked but so... More
