The charm of Newcastle is that it packs a lot into its compact size. There are art galleries and museums (from Pre-Raphaelites to blockbuster exhibitions); ancient history and modern architecture (Norman castle keep to 21st-century concert hall); the Centre for Children’s Books to the Centre for Life; plus tantalising shopping from designer fashion to farmers’ markets. Just wander and you’re in for a treat: the river Tyne and its magnificent seven bridges, graceful Georgian architecture, pavement cafes and quayside bars. It’s a city with huge spirit and an infectiously easy-going charm.
It can also leave you speechless; stand on the magically balanced Millennium Bridge and we defy you not to feel overawed.
TEMPORARY CLOSURE OF JESMOND DENE HOUSE 22/03/2020
Dear Family and Friends of Jesmond Dene House,
We are absolutely committed to the well-being, health and safety of our guests and staff.
The COVID-19 virus is rapidly spreading throughout the world and each Government is following their own strategy to minimise the impact on their people.
The UK Government have advised most recently that people should avoid bars, theatres, clubs, and by implication, restaurants, though businesses are left to make their own operational choices based on their unique circumstances.
This is a rapidly changing situation and in order to ensure we put our guests and staff at the front of our considerations we have made the decision to temporarily close the hotel with effective from 19:00hrs, Sunday, 22nd March 2020.
We will keep everyone advised as the situation changes and look forward to welcoming you all back at the earliest possible time and in accordance with future Government and WHO advice.
We wish you and your families well through this difficult time.
The Jesmond Dene House
