Hexham Town Council
Hexham is in the county of Northumberland,on the river Tyne in Tynedale.
It is situated nearly in the middle of the country between Newcastle on Tyne,on the east coast and Carlisle,on the west coast and very close to Hadrian's Wall which links both cities.
There is much to do and see in Hexham and of course we are the gateway to our wonderful Northumberland with its many castles,walks,Kielder Forest [the largest man made forest in Europe] and Kielder Water, Hadrian’s Wall. There are many more easily accessible attractions at Alnwick Castle; Alnwick Garden; Lindisfarne [Holy Island]; Wallington Hall and more,far too many to list here.
Then there are the more recent attractions – the Metro Shopping Centre;Baltic Art Centre;the Angel of the North. You can easily make visits to the historic centres of Newcastle or Carlisle and if you set off a little early the Lake District to the west and Edinburgh to the north and Durham to the south east are just car day trips away.
