Characterised by its elegant Victorian townhouses and popular entertainment scene, Jesmond is a favourite for young couples and families on a weekend away in the northeast. The Osborne Road area is particularly popular with both tourists and locals alike, owing to its array of charming cafes, upmarket restaurants and trendy cocktail bars, with its nightlife touted as rivalling that of Bigg Market and Quayside.
Lazy afternoons can be spent reading a book in the sunshine or picnicking with the family at one of the many public parks in the area. The vast Town Moor, Exhibition Park and Leazes Park are all within walking distance of this Hot Rate hotel, as well as the renowned Newcastle United Golf Club. From here, tourists seeking to explore some of the area’s inimitable heritage can head to the nearby Spital Tongues, a historic village filled with traditional English pubs, relics from Newcastle’s industrial past and chocolate-box churches.
Jesmond is linked to Newcastle city centre via its two metro stations, Jesmond and West Jesmond, several dedicated bus routes and the A167 motorway. Boasting some of the country’s best shopping, Newcastle is a hit with shopaholics after some serious retail therapy. The city centre features the Eldon Square Shopping Centre, one of the largest in the UK, as well as the popular Northumberland Street, both offering an abundance of the nation’s favourite high street retailers and luxury fashion brands. Alternatively, keen shoppers can head across the iconic Millennium Bridge into neighbouring Gateshead which is home to the largest indoor shopping centre in Europe, the MetroCentre.
