Walking tour - Invisible Histories: Stories of homelessness in 19th Century Newcastle

About

Join us on this unique tour of Newcastle’s Quayside to hear previously untold stories of homelessness in the 19th century. Piecing together archival evidence uncovered through the Homeless History of Newcastle project we will get a glimpse into a hidden part of Newcastle’s past and learn what these stories can tell us about homelessness then and now.

Created by project participants and led by NGI tour guides, this walking tour will explore five stories that each offer a different perspective on homelessness in Victorian Newcastle.
