Hexham

Once the haunt of monks and marauding Vikings, the winding streets of Hexham now proudly hosts a buzzing arts and cultural scene thanks to the Queen’s Hall Arts Centre and annual Book Festival.


Worship the beauty of Hexham Abbey

Hexham Abbey

Hexham Abbey

Take a moment of reflection in this important holy place, founded in 674 by the Northumbrian saint Bishop Wilfrid. Retrace the steps of Benedictine monks down the gently worn steps of the 'Night Stair', the only one of its kind in UK; and peek into the crypt, thought to be over 1,300 years old.

Treat yourself to afternoon tea the Northumbrian way at Walwick Hall

Walwick Hall’s Northumbrian Afternoon Tea replaces regular sandwiches with a local fave… the humble stotty! Weather dependent, it can be served in front of a roaring fire in the comfort of the Drawing Room, or on the terrace overlooking the tranquil grounds.

Journey through history on the Roman road

Travel the Military Road to explore some of the best preserved sections of Hadrian’s Wall. Walk onto the Whin Sill grassland roof of The Sill, National Landscape Discovery Centre, for panoramic views and discover what life was like for soldiers at the fully-accessible Roman Army Museum.
