Pollen Hotspots in Newcastle
Newcastle is home to some lovely parks and green spaces, which, while they are peaceful and serene to spend summer days in, can play havoc with hay fever symptoms. The Town Moor Park spans around 1,000 acres (larger than Hyde Park and Hampstead Heath combined). It’s predominantly grass and trees, so this should only be an issue for those who have a grass or tree pollen allergy (March to May). Jesmond Dene Park is set in suburban Newcastle and is a tranquil woodland haven.
