Hexham

Hexham is a market town and civil parish in Northumberland, England, south of the River Tyne, and was the administrative centre for the Tynedale district from 1974 to 2009. Explore Hexham's surroundings by going to Mary Ann Rogers Gallery (in West Woodburn), Belsay (Bolam Lake Country Park & Belsay Hall, Castle and Gardens) and Morpeth (National Trust Wallington, Stanton Hall Gardens and Nursery, &more). There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Falconry Days, delve into the distant past at Chesters Roman Fort, get engrossed in the history at Vindolanda, and learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Alpaca Encounters.

Famous for its unspoiled natural beauty, Northumberland is considered one of the most picturesque areas of countryside in the entire UK. The region is best explored by car, on the county's well-maintained and very quiet roads. Visitors to the area often report driving distances of over 100 km (70 mi) and meeting only a dozen other cars. In a country so modernized and populous, it's hard to imagine such an undiscovered area of wilderness and tranquility. As you drive over the rugged landscape, only a few houses and some secluded villages dot the horizon. With a mere hour separating it from the Scottish capital, it has a distinctly Scottish feel.
