Hexham ©
Hexham is a market town and civil parish in Northumberland, England, south of the River Tyne, and was the administrative centre for the Tynedale district from 1974 to 2009. Kick off your visit on the 3rd (Thu): steep yourself in history at Hexham Abbey, then explore the ancient world of Corbridge Roman Town, then contemplate the long history of Housesteads Roman Fort - Hadrian's Wall, and finally trek along Walltown Crags - Hadrian's Wall.

To see photos, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Hexham road trip planner.

London to Hexham is an approximately 4.5-hour flight. You can also take a train; or drive. When traveling from London in September, plan for a bit cooler days and about the same nights in Hexham: temperatures range from 19°C by day to 10°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Thu) early enough to drive to Alnwick.
