Hexham

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. Venture out of the city with trips to Bellingham (Hareshaw Linn & Bellingham Heritage Centre), Belsay (Belsay Castle, Belsay Hall, Castle and Gardens, &more) and Kielder (Kielder Water Bird of Prey Centre, Kielder Water & Forest Park, &more). There's much more to do: get engrossed in the history at Vindolanda, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St Oswald's Church, steep yourself in history at Housesteads Roman Fort - Hadrian's Wall, and head outdoors with Allout Adventures.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Hexham vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

Newcastle upon Tyne to Hexham is an approximately 1- hour bus ride. You can also take a train; or drive. In November in Hexham, expect temperatures between 10°C during the day and 3°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Thu) to allow time to drive to Amble.
