Reviewed March 15, 2013

Why should this Victorian pile be such a tranquil gem? I don't know, but it is. And it has a wizard ancient crypt!

Reviewed March 8, 2013

We are religious but Hexham Abbey is the perfect place to visit on Xmas eve just to get you into the spirit of things. A nice change from the behemoth Durham cathedral.

“cultural visit”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

This is always an interesting place to visit...either for quiet contemplation or for a cultural music al experience. The guides are very helpful without being pushy and obviously love showing visitors around their beautiful abbey.
