The Rosebery Hotel is based in the beautiful Jesmond, only a short distance from Newcastle’s city centre, so if you’re planning a stay soon, make sure you give us a call! You’ll find that there are so many things to do in Newcastle, during your stay here.
Let’s begin on the doorstep; what can you do in Jesmond? As you may know, from browsing our website, The Rosebery Hotel is situated a stone’s throw from the beautiful Jesmond Dene, where you can go for a leisurely walk (perfect if you’ve brought your dog along with you) and enjoy being surrounded by stunning greenery. If the weather’s nice, why not grab some picnic supplies from the local shop or Dene’s Deli (just around the corner) and sit in Jesmond Dene Park on the lush grass!?
If the hotel’s boutique interiors have inspired you, the Antiques Village is not far away, where you can get your hands on some unique vintage finds. Make sure you pop into one of the Rosebery’s favourite shops, Fern Avenue Antiques!
When the evening rolls around, and you feel a bit peckish, why not eat at Peace & Loaf?! Peace & Loaf is owned by Dave Coulson, one of the 2010 MasterChef: The Professionals finalists, and offers a unique and diverse menu to suit any tastes. It’s also 1 minute up the road from our hotel!
There are lots of restaurants in Jesmond to choose from, all are within walking distance too!
Of course, being so close to Newcastle means that your choice of things to do is endless!!! Getting the bus into Newcastle could not be easier; the bus stop is a minute away from the hotel and has regular buses into the town centre.
Now you’re in Newcastle you can go SHOPPING!!! With a whole host of different shops in Eldon Square, Northumberland Street, Grey’s Monument… we could go on… you’ll find it easy to fill up your whole day with retail therapy!
There are tons of places to eat if you get hungry. The Gate is full of restaurants, and on the top floor is Empire cinema, where you can catch one of the latest releases, before, or after you’ve filled up with food! If a big name cinema isn’t your scene, there’s the Tyneside Cinema and The Star and Shadow Cinema, which offer a cosier experience.
Of course, Newcastle isn’t just all about city life, there’s Leazes Park and Exhibition Park; which both offer outdoor tennis courts and a basketball court if you fancy getting a bit sporty? Or you could just feed the ducks and enjoy a leisurely amble!
Not far from Exhibition Park, the Great North Museum: Hancock, has some interesting and informative displays, as well as regularly changing exhibitions. If museums and places of interest are your thing, then you should also visit the Centre for Life and the Discovery Museum!
Keeping with the cultural theme, Newcastle and the surrounding area have a number of art galleries to visit: The Laing, Baltic, The Biscuit Factory, Hatton Gallery and The Globe Gallery but to name just a few.
Head down to the Quayside and you’ll get a brilliant view of all of the Tyne’s bridges, a perfect photo opportunity. If you’re stay means that you’re here on a Sunday, you must visit the Quayside market! With so much to take in, look at and even buy if you find something that tickles your fancy, you’ll be able to spend hours there.
If you’re staying for more than a few days, you may want to explore further afield. There are buses and Metros that will take you to the coast if you’re fancying a paddle in the sea or fish and chips at the beach. The world is your oyster (almost)!
Newcastle is a great city to visit, and we hope to see you here soon!
