We love visiting Hexham Abbey. The food in the Refectory is brilliant and the staff are friendly. On Wednesday there’s a Tots Praise which is great fun for littlies.

Hexham is well worth a visit. Very nice shops and the Abbey is amazing. So much to see and dates back to AD250. A fantastic historical place and a must if in the north east.

Forst of all: The Abbey is only a ten minute walk away from the station, so really easy to reach. After that hike up the hill you stand right in front of it. The many volunteers on the ground are all very friendly and eager...More
