Newburn is a semi rural village in Newcastle upon Tyne, England, in the metropolitan county of Tyne and Wear. As of 2001, the area had a population of 41,294. It is situated on the north bank of the Tyne, opposite to the Gateshead area of Blaydon. Newburn is of considerable antiquity. Roman remains have been discovered in proximity to Hadrian's Wall. A church here was destroyed by fire in 1072 in the course of a dispute between two claimants of the earldom of Northumberland. Here in 1640, the Battle of Newburn took place. The Scottish Covenanters planted guns to protect them while fording the river, after which they defeated the English on the County Durham (now Gateshead) side at Stellaheugh, and subsequently occupied Newcastle upon Tyne. The name of Scotswood, one of the manufacturing villages between Newburn and the city, commemorates one of their positions. The district has many associations with the famous engineer George Stephenson, who was married in Newburn Parish Church. The village is also the birthplace for an earlier steam pioneer William Hedley, whose first locomotive Puffing Billy was built in 1812, two years prior to his rivals first locomotive.

More recently, Newburn is renowned for the independent micro brewery "The Big Lamp" and attached pub, "The Keelman" which serves meals and the brewery's own cask ale. The Keelman pub stands at the entrance to the Tyne Riverside Country Park, approximately 6 miles from the neighbouring village of Wylam.

From 1894 to 1974 Newburn along with other suburbs to the west of Newcastle were governed by Newburn Urban District Council. Under the Local Government Act 1972 it became part of the metropolitan borough of Newcastle upon Tyne in the metropolitan county of Tyne and Wear.
