Hexham

The historic market town of Hexham is a mere 15 minutes drive from Bardon Mill, and boasts a great many shops, cafes and places of interest.

Tuesdays are market day, and after picking up a bargain, you might want to look around the Abbey (built by St Wilfred in AD 648) Hexham Gaol (supposed to be the oldest purpose built jail in England) or maybe just relax with a cuppa at one of Hexham's many friendly cafes.

There is also the award winning farmers market held at Hexham on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month.
