Heaton Park Newcastle, Heaton Park, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE6 5JS – Visit Now
Found in the east end of Newcastle, Heaton Park offers fantastic opportunities to explore with woods, beautifully maintained flowerbeds, and wooded areas all in the same park. It is fantastically connected to both Armstrong Park and Jesmond Dene, for those looking to extend their walk around the other parks locally. If you become hungry or thirsty on your walk, do not worry, refreshments can be found at the Victorian pavilion and terrace which is home to Sambuca’s Italian restaurant – meaning you can enjoy a coffee or a full Italian meal on your trip to the park. Alongside this for parents there are two play parks, meaning you can entertain your little ones while enjoying the beautiful scenery. One of the most spectacular things within the Park is King John’s Palace – a 13th century fortified manor house (often mistaken for a small castle). King John himself did not own this manor but instead spent some of his youth here while he lived with Adam of Jesmond, who died in the crusades and his house became a ruin that you can see today.
