Jesmond, one of the most popular areas with students, has a smart village feel and a great cosmopolitan atmosphere, thanks to the welcoming atmosphere and the mix of students, professionals and families who live there. There’s something to appeal to all of these groups with a great choice of boutique shops, restaurants and cafes, as well as a Waitrose, Starbucks and Pizza Express.
Osborne Road is at the centre of the area, playing home to several independent bars, all offering great deals for when you want to kick back and relax. For stunning autumn walks or summer picnics, Jesmond Dene is a beautiful public woodland park that’s right on your doorstep, complete with its own petting zoo and waterfall.
It’s just a short walk or super quick metro ride, from either of Jesmond’s stops, to both universities and the city centre, so you’re close enough to enjoy everything in the city centre but far enough away to enjoy a more laid back environment.
There are many beautiful period properties to choose from and all kinds of sizes and styles to fit your needs; from flats and maisonettes to huge family homes overlooking the Town Moor.
