Newcastle neighbourhood

Located in the centre of the beautiful and popular student area, Upper Ouseburn, Nido is just minutes from Newcastle City Centre. The area is ideal for students as it’s a safe neighbourhood with a range of transport options including bus and Metro. You will have easy access to local shops and some of the city’s most popular student hangouts including cafes, restaurants, bars and music venues, all within a few minutes of your front door. And, as we’re only minutes from campus, there are no early starts or long commutes to worry about either.

Ouseburn Cafe

Our personal favourite is their Ultimate Burger which consists of a beef burger, bacon, lettuce and onion, all sandwiched between two cheese toasties. If you’re feeling extra brave you can even make it a double. Good prices, good food but not for the faint-hearted.

Artisan is still relatively new to the Ouseburn Valley, and their mantra, ‘where food is art’ may seem a touch too high-brow for some. At Artisan they pride themselves on the best locally sourced ingredients, producing fresh seasonal dishes, and it goes without saying that the presentation is exquisite. Perfect for a date-night or special occasion.

Star & Shadow Cinema

More than a cinema, the Star & Shadow Cinema is an alternative social, cultural, arts and community hub run by a collective of volunteers.

The Victoria Tunnel

The Victoria Tunnel was built to transport coal from the other side of the city to the river in 1842 then used as an Air Raid shelter in WW2. Guided tours offer an informative and fun trip through - a once in a lifetime experience.
