Getting Around

On Foot

Once you're here, Hexham town centre is compact and easy to get around on foot, with the Market Place being a natural, central landmark to explore from. The Tourist Information Centre and Library are in temporary premises at the top of the Wentworth Carpark, while their permanent home in the Queen's Hall is renovated. They should move back to the Queen's Hall in early 2018.

Parking

There are numerous car parks, some of which are free, however you often need to display a parking disc. Discs cost £1 and are available in many businesses around Hexham, including the Wentworth Leisure Centre in Wentworth Carpark. The Wentworth Carpark is by far the largest carpark and is within a few minutes walk of the Market Place.
