GETTING HERE…

BY ROAD
Jesmond Dene is situated close to the A1058 Coast Road, Newcastle upon Tyne.

BY BUS

From Haymarket bus station
Buses 305, 306, 307 and 308.  Get off at Cradlewell/Jesmond Road, next to a stone wall, and just before the road tunnel.  Walk downhill and bear off left at the turn, and you’ll come to Armstrong Bridge.

From the Monument, John Dobson Street or the West end of Newcastle
Bus number 38.  Get off either at Jesmond Road (as above, for the South end of the Dene and Armstrong Bridge), or stay on until Freeman Hospital (for Paddy Freeman’s).

BY METRO
A bit more of a walk, this one.  You’re better off with the bus, but the North end of Jesmond Dene is about 15 minutes walk from South Gosforth Metro. Go down the hill, across to the second of the double roundabouts, then turn right up the hill.  You can either continue to Paddy Freeman’s at the top, or turn right about half way up down a path
