Elegant, leafy avenues, a great sense of community, cafes and restaurants, a thriving cultural scene open green spaces, picturesque woodland and a spectacular coastline. Jesmond has it all.

If we had to pick five reasons, in no particular order, for living at Pegasus’ luxurious and inspired Jesmond Assembly in the heart of this gem of a neighbourhood they would have to be:

The Metro

Newcastle is one of only four UK cities to have one and Jesmond Metro is only a three-minute walk from Jesmond Assembly. The Metro is a great way to make the most of all the incredible attractions in the historic Newcastle City Centre and will whisk you to areas of beautiful surroundings like Northumberland’s stunning coastline and countryside. And if a trip abroad beckons, Newcastle International Airport is a twenty minute ride away.

Open Green spaces

Jesmond offers some lovely leafy avenues and lanes for a stroll, but the real highlights are its parks and open green spaces. Jesmond Dene is a spectacular park, a nearby peaceful haven and a beautiful spot for a day out. Also home to Jesmond Dene House, one of Newcastle’s best hotels and the perfect spot for afternoon tea after a bracing walk around the Dene. The ancient and atmospheric 1000 acres of Town Moor and Palace of Arts in Exhibition Park are two more fantastic places to explore and enjoy a short walk.

Distinctive dining

Jesmond is home to some of Newcastle’s and the country’s finest eating whether its Michelin star dining you fancy, gathering together the ingredients for your own home cooked feast, or just popping out for a coffee and cake with a friend. From House of Tides to Jesmond food Market, Harvest Café to Peace & Loaf, the choices are endless. That’s when you’re not enjoying a glass of wine in the comfortable shared lounge or a bite to eat in the social kitchen at Jesmond Assembly.

World class culture

Two miles from the centre of Newcastle, Jesmond is a fantastic place from which to access the cultural highlights of the city centre. Aside from soaking up the city’s rich industrial heritage, there is art, theatre, music and dance for the culture vulture to enjoy, all less than a ten minute metro ride. Venues like The Biscuit Factory, Sage Gateshead, Northern Stage or Baltic Centre for Contemporary art all showcase internationally acclaimed art and performing artists, whether it’s the renowned homegrown Royal Northern Sinfonia or a visiting international production at Northern Stage.

Vibrant, friendly and safe neighbourhood

Jesmond has an energetic and friendly vibe and a sense of fun with lots of interesting boutiques and independent shops for some retail therapy. There’s a lively bar and café scene, including Café 1901 where you can get involved in the programme of workshops and events. If you’re feeling a bit more energetic or want to practice you swing there’s nearby Jesmond Lawn Tennis Club and the Newcastle United Golf Club.
