Located in the heart of The Ouseburn area of Newcastle adjacent to the Quayside, it is within walking distance of the City Centre and Railway Station with good transport links by road and a frequent local bus, the Q3, dropping off near the door.
The Ouseburn has a unique community feeling of its own with excellent pubs and places to eat on the doorstep: The Tyne Bar, The Free Trade, The Cycle Hub Cafe, The Cluny, The Cumberland Arms and Ouseburn Farm are just a stroll along the river away. There is even accomodation at the neighbouring Hotel du Vin. Meeting rooms are available for hire for our internal companies for free.

'We love working with the Toffee Factory and their excellent team. The space is brilliantly designed by Xsite Architecture to nurture creativity and features furniture and prints by a number of Northern designers we work with on the Northern Design Festival. We have done pop up design events at the Toffee Factory during Open Studios and are using the space for our partner events with the Crafts Council.'
