Situated as it is in the middle of the built up Hexham town square, from the outside one could be forgiven for underestimating the scale of the Abbey. From the inside, there is no mistaking its size and solidity, which (in parts) dates from the...More

If you're visiting Hexham then a trip into the Abbey is a must. The recent addition of the visitor centre is brilliant and aimed at children and adults alike. Then to take the time to go into the church itself is a must. So much...More
