Chris Steele-Perkins – Photography at Jesmond Dene HouseThere are barely any walls not being put to some use in Jesmond Dene House. And there are a lot of walls. Almost every wall that I can think of, if it hasn’t a window or isn’t an outer wall, has something interesting mounted atop it. What’s more, for those who really pay attention, the things that are mounted change at fairly regular intervals. A lot of time and effort, then. But for those who do pay attention, very rewarding. True to its Arts & Crafts architectural flirtations, in its own way, Jesmond Dene House is a kind of Art Gallery and all because having art on display for those who visit has to be more interesting than having none.
Barbara Gubbins, Celebrant at Jesmond Dene House, reflects on the glorious Royal WeddingThe recent Royal Wedding was truly spectacular and even though we weren’t all invited it allowed us the opportunity to become involved in our own special way. At Jesmond Dene House, the Great Hall was turned into celebratory splendour with red, white and blue flags, a royal themed afternoon tea and guests in their finery watching the drama unfold on the big screen. We even made it into Cosmopolitan magazine as one of THE PLACES TO BE on the day.

Who was Saint ValentineHallmark Cards was founded in Kansas City, in 1910, by Joyce Hall. However, in spite of the inordinate associated proceeds they receive annually, Joyce did not invent Valentine’s Day. So, who was Saint Valentine; what have they to do with Geoffrey Chaucer; and what has any of this to do with Jesmond Dene House.
The Titanic, Wall Street & Wi-Fi at Jesmond Dene House: 3 Strange Bedfellows‘The Titanic’ was a feat of engineering brilliance. Literally titanic, for such an iron and steel behemoth to be buoyant was a juxtaposition of great paradox. After colliding with an iceberg on April 15th 1912, she took 1500 lives with her as she sank to the bottom of the ocean: her colossal scale matched only by her monumental failure.
Newcastle is the Number 1 Place to Visit in the World in 2018The words parochial and provincial, traditionally, have negative connotations. Being too proud of where one comes from can be controversial territory. Similarly, for any region, over time, local history and the great achievements of the past can become caricatured and condensed down into sets of crude, unfair stereotypes. Contrary to common characterisations, the North does not remain trapped in the horizon of Coal Mines and Shipyards. Nor, it seems, are we any closer than Kevin Keegan was to supplanting our well-worn, industrial trope with its Europe-conquering, footballing equivalent.

Fond Farewell From Stephen SuriThere are 7 years’ bad luck for breaking a mirror. I’ve always thought this excessive. Roughly, there are 4 cat years to each human year. One can verify this, fairly easily, by consulting Riley the Cat at Jesmond Dene House. On average, in the UK, the term of a life sentence is 15 years.

TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for 5 YearsTripAdvisor is a word that foments a very wide spectrum of responses in people. For linguistic and grammatical purists, can be a source of much irritation: where amateurs have usurped professional journalists, littering their prose with misnomers and non sequiturs.
