Planning Your Visit

Whether you have a few hours or a few days, there is plenty to see and do in Hexham. Clustered around the medieval abbey and market place, you'll find an independent Art Deco cinema, the Queen's Hall arts centre with a 350-seat theatre and two galleries plus a good range of shops, many unique to Hexham. The town has fishing, golf and many other outdoor activities within walking distance plus a leisure centre with swimming pools, gym, softplay and ten-pin bowling. Paddleboarders, kayakers, rowers and canoeists enjoy the lovely stretch of river at Tyne Green Country Park.  

The town is ideally located to explore Hadrian's Wall (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), Northumberland National Park, the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Kielder Water and Forest Park, the Sill Landscape Discovery Centre and the International Dark Skies Park
