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

Both young and old alike can benefit from a visit to this establishment. Free admission but controlled by an efficient (non stuffy) reception. A fantastic selection of literature for all ages. A very well stocked cafe with a nice selection of healthy foods.

We visited Seven Stories with our five week old son, our friend and her two year old daugther on Monday. It was a brilliant experience. Lots of great interactive exhibitions for the two year old, a fabulous storytelling session, and very helpful and attentive staff. They even offered to do a baby storytelling session specially for our son. The two... More

I visited here towards the end of April and felt a little bit underwhelmed by what was offered. I visited with my husband and 2 year old son and felt for £7 per adult it wasn't great value for money. The bottom (craft floor) was deserted with no activities at all laid out for the children. We walked into a... More

We visited seven stories during our holiday from Lincolnshire and I have to say it was the biggest waste of £19 I have spent in a while! My 4 year old daughter loves books so we thought she would enjoy the experience that seven stories promised, in reality the only member of staff that spoke/ interacted with us was the... More

Me and my partner took our four and two year old sons to Seven Stories during the first week of the Easter holidays. Safe to say it was a hit with them both, with familiar storybook characters all around, a great show on on the top floor, plenty of interactive parts- with children able to dress up as characters from...

We spent a wonderful day here with our 3 year old who had a great time too. There was plenty to keep her amused, she especially enjoyed the craft floor and the fairytale theatre. When we visited there was an exhibition about books to screen which had alot of information and articles about some of our favourite films and tv... More

Student tickets were £7 which was kind of pricy still. I think it should have been £5ish Each story had something different on. Beautiful surroundings and amazing for kids. There was plenty of times for them to listen to story time and explore. The attic was beautiful. Perfect for book worms! The kids get to dress up as their favourite... More

We spent an afternoon here and did enjoy our visit. However, having read about this place before our trip, I did feel a little let down and was expecting more. The location and setting is lovely, an old Victorian warehouse on the river. Admission prices are quite steep compared to other museums (free) in the area. Staff are all very... More

I had high hopes for this place and have wanted to go for a while - we live out of the area. In the end I left a bit disappointed, but I can't really put my finger on why or what it lacked, which isn't very constructive I realise. It was not terrible by any means and if your family... More
