Ouseburn’s fascinating social and industrial heritage makes it the perfect backdrop for learning. We offer a range of experiences for all ages, from KS2 to university studies. Our immersive 'field days’ utilise local living heritage, be that the Victoria Tunnel or Ouseburn’s architecture, to help bring stories to life and create memorable learning trips.
