Hexham is a charming market town characterised by its stone architecture, cobbled streets and historic buildings. Combine this with a blend of boutiques, high street favourites and regular outdoor markets offering you a unique experience. A warm welcome awaits you in our many quirky coffee shops, pubs and award-winning restaurants. Hexham boasts its own racecourse, theatre, cinema, golf courses and leisure centre, including a pool, running track and tenpin bowling.
Discover the hidden treasures of Hexham in the heart of the beautiful Tyne Valley just a few miles south of Hadrian’s Wall. Be captivated by its stunning backdrop, a medieval abbey set in pretty parks, by the River Tyne.
Much of Hexham’s Heritage is linked to that of Lindisfarne, St. Cuthbert and St. Wilfrid. A close look at some of the stones in the Saxon crypt will reveal they have been recycled from Roman times.
The centre has a 25 metre, six-lane pool, a 15 metre studio pool along with splash and fun areas alongside an international standard athletics field, gym, eight-lane tenpin bowling centre, U8s soft play area and cafe.
In the centre of Hexham, dominating the Market Place, is the ancient and beautiful Hexham Abbey (a former Priory) - a must for any visitor.
Friendly, knowledgeable staff are able to advise on places to visit and the latest events taking place and help make the most of your stay.
