  • I love being in touch with nature and this awesome park surprised me in the middle of the city. You must not leave without visiting it (no matter how much the Georgies insist that you must visit the Angel of the North).

  • Jesmond Dene is a pearl in the heart of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. What I absolutely love is going for a stroll and getting so immersed in the beauty that nature offers that you forget you are in a fully functional modern city. I recommend visiting the Dene at least once a season to appreciate its beauty. Pets corner and the play parks offer fun for kids and make for enjoyable family friendly outings. A lovely place to picnic with family and friends.
  • Fantastic place for a family day out... Waterfalls, parks, trees, pets corner. Something for everyone. Beautiful place.
