Pets corner Jesmond landing page Explore Jesmond Dene and Pet's Corner

Jesmond has a reputation for being Newcastle’s most fashionable district.

Located just a few miles outside of the city centre, Jesmond is a stylish suburb which is home to a lively bar scene, excellent restaurants as well as a range of boutique shops and quaint cafes. Jesmond is also a very leafy suburb with plenty of space to escape the hustle and bustle of city life.

The thriving neighbourhood is easily accessed via excellent metro links from both the city centre, airport and the coast, which means that you can just hop on or off at any of the three stations in Jesmond area (Jesmond, West Jesmond and Ilford Road) to visit what's on offer or, if you're staying in one of Jesmond's great boutique hotels, use the metro to explore the rest of the region.

Something Good Jesmond landing page Something Different, Jesmond

Jesmond Dene is a central feature which runs through the heart of Jesmond and is known for its tranquil natural beauty; a popular route for Sunday runners, coffee catch ups and ideal for family days out to meet the furry locals at Pet’s Corner. The Dene also affords urban walkers a breath of countryside fresh air as they meander through the densely tree-lined paths and alongside the river from a spectacular waterfall at one end and into Heaton Park at the other. Unpack your picnics in Jesmond Dene during the summer months or treat yourself to local street food all-year-round from the Jesmond Food Market which occurs twice a month along Armstrong Bridge, overlooking the Dene.

Nestled at the heart of the Dene is Jesmond Dene House, a luxurious restaurant and independent hotel which emerges fairytale-like from the woodland. Once a magnificent home to industrial pioneer Lord Armstrong, Jesmond Dene House is now famed for its indulgent overnight stays and refined afternoon teas.
