Located close to the famous Osborne Road, home to a number of the region’s most popular bars and restaurants, you have a wealth of amenities on your doorstep. From award-winning cafes to major supermarkets, doctors to dog kennels, it offers everything you expect from a modern commuter suburb. Unlike others though, Jesmond has its own charm and rich heritage.
Jesmond also boasts three areas of conservation, the most impressive of which is the landscaped beauty of Jesmond Dene. An area of thick woodland, it was made into a park in the 1860’s, with the addition of crags, waterfalls and pools intended to replicate a real rural setting. The area is perfect for quiet afternoon strolls and family days out, with the pigs and alpacas of Pet’s Corner sure to keep young children occupied and interested.
If you are looking for a slice of city life then you won’t have far to go. One of England’s most iconic and beautiful cities is right on your doorstep, Newcastle is just two miles away, with regular Metro services running from Jesmond Metro station. Once in the city you will find premium shopping, restaurants, culture and more pubs than you could ever need.
Not to mention the beautiful and world-renowned Quayside. Be sure to look up and admire the engineered beauty of the Tyne Bridge - and the infamous fog!
If you want to get active, the local sports facilities are excellent with gyms, golf clubs and artificial pitches nearby. For a watching brief, Newcastle United, or the ‘Toon’ as they are known locally, play their home games at the impressive St James’ Park. A world famous footballing institution, the Magpies are one of the best supported teams in the country.
Similarly, Rugby Union club Newcastle Falcons has been a top flight club for much of its history, regularly drawing sellout crowds to its Kingston Park stadium. Jesmond is also the home of Newcastle Cricket Club and Northumberland County Cricket club, who compete in the Minor Counties Championship. Newcastle Racecourse is one of the most popular tracks in the country, recently benefiting from investment which saw it develop an artificial flat surface whilst keeping a turf course for jumping.
For a more cultured pursuit, there are numerous theatres in Newcastle, including the impressive Theatre Royal and riverside Opera House, offering a wide variety of entertainment. For bigger acts, the Metro Radio Arena has hosted an impressive list of international stars, and the O2 Academy is a regular gig stop for touring bands.
Orchard Dene is perfect for families, the local area is surrounded with museums like the Discovery Centre, Great North Museum and the working village, Beamish, all nearby. Ocean Beach Pleasure Park is also a great day out, with traditional seaside fun fair and dry surf slope.
Tynemouth, Cullercoats and Whitley Bay all provide idyllic seafront beauty and are all a short car journey away.
