Travelling around Hexham

Travelling around Hexham

Hexham is situated in Northumberland, just south of the River Tyne. Voted by readers of Country Life magazine as England’s favourite market town, this bustling northern hub is absolutely steeped in history.

Walk in the footsteps of Roman warriors and marauding Vikings as you explore Hexham’s winding cobbled streets. Visit the market place in the heart of the town, with its beautiful medieval Abbey and 15th-century gatehouse, or stand at the edge of the old Roman Empire at the ruins of Hadrian’s wall.

Hexham is easily accessible by road and rail. Arriva buses operate in the area, providing routes to nearby towns and villages, such as Corbridge and Haltwhistle, as well as regular services to Newcastle and Carlisle.
