As the weather finally begins to work in our favour and the holidays approach, it is time for nocturnal students to stumble out of libraries and into the Toon to see what is on offer this spring. Rest assured, there is something for everyone!

Whilst it can be seen as a cliché, nothing beats a walk through Jesmond Dene Park. The Park is home to beautiful scenery such as the Falls and the Old Mill. The best way to experience the Park is to start at the very top and walk down the river. At the end of the river lies open spaces perfect for picnics, as well as Pets Corner for those animal lovers in your life. There are frequent markets upon on Armstrong Bridge which make a visit to the Dene all the more special.

Yoga Therapies have started monthly rooftop Yoga and Brunch sessions atop Fenwicks on Northumberland Street. This was first introduced in February 2022 and it is meant to reenergise your mindset whilst admiring the Newcastle skyline. After each yoga session, customers are treated to brunch and freshly-pressed juice. Sounds like Heaven!

An art trail that’s present in the North East at the moment is the Morph Trail. The trail of large Morph replicas was debuted across the North East since the creator of plasticine was born in North Tyneside. A bit of a tenuous link I admit, but I digress. Each replica has a unique design and a trail map can be downloaded to catch them all! Even if art is not your thing, it encourages you to get out and about to explore the North East.

A trip to the beach for a chippy will warm you all up before heading back to Newcastle in cheery spirits.

For those of you who dislike too much warmth, then fear not! That can be easily remedied by a visit to a Newcastle metro station and riding the metro all the way to Whitley Bay. Granted this location does push the brief a bit of things to do in Newcastle, sue me. Whitley Bay is home to an ice rink, where you can hire ice skates and join in on public sessions. The experience of learning how to skate for the first time is priceless, and I can promise the sight of your mates all falling over will have you in tears. Afterwards, a trip to the beach for a chippy will warm you all up before heading back to Newcastle in cheery spirits. Such an experience is hard to beat.
