Whatever the season, it's good to get outdoors in NewcastleGateshead.

Despite being a bustling city, Newcastle and neighbouring Gateshead are blooming with parks and gardens that make it easy for you to breathe in the fresh, restorative air without travelling far. Whether it’s a fresh autumnal walk to enjoy the changing colours of the leaves; a frosty winter march or a leisurely summer picnic and an evening stroll – there are many open spaces in Newcastle and Gateshead to discover.

It’s good for the soul to breathe in the countryside and with so much leafy-green in Newcastle’s urban setting – you have the best of both worlds – not to mention you’re a skip and a jump away from vast expanses of rolling countryside and wide-open space in nearby Northumberland.
