Jesmond is actually one of Newcastle’s oldest and finest suburbs within the city, which has grown increasingly popular among students and young professionals over the years! Located about 10 minutes outside of the main City Centre, Jesmond is home to some of the best bars and restaurants, as well as independent shops and cafes – many of which are hidden away among the vast amount of Victorian terraced houses.
You wouldn’t expect it, but located in the heart of Jesmond is the picturesque Jesmond Dene – a perfect place to explore, especially in the summer months. Jesmond Dene provides strong historical links with 19th Century industrial development and landscape design – Lord Armstrong’ s influence being very apparent. No matter where you need to travel to from Jesmond there is always really good transport links! With the Tyne and Wear Metro on your doorstep, you could head straight into the city centre or even down to the coast so easily.
