Jesmond Dene, Red Walk, Jesmond Dene, Jesmond, Newcastle, NE7 7BQ – Visit Now
Jesmond Dene is one of the favourite locations for walks in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne for locals, from relaxing walks through to picnics, people from all over the city travel to enjoy this wonderful Victorian park. With it only a short car journey from the city centre it is an easily accessible escape from urban life. The valley is a gorgeous ‘v’ shaped wooded valley, where trees stretch up to touch the sky far above your head, and in the height of summer the river makes the air almost tropical, with a cooling haze coming off the waterfalls. In winter, snow transforms it into a frozen wonderland which could easily be Narnia and with Jesmond Dene house in the middle of the valley to provide a refreshing hot drink, you can easily continue the fairy tale experience. Jesmond Dene also has a wonderful petting zoo called pets corner which is open throughout the year and provides a huge amount of enjoyment for children and adults of all ages.
