You are welcomed by members of the congregation. The scale of the abbey becomes apparent when you go in. but it is a little confusing as you enter through one of the transcepts. There is dramatic Early English architecture plus Roman remains.

What a fabulous place... incredible building. We were able to view the wonderful stained glass with the sun streaming through. A place well worth turning off the A69 for. Plus Hexham has free parking car parks!!! Well done Hexham.

In the very heart of Hexham, used daily as a church, it has a real feel of history, some interesting items inside

Magnificent abbey -well worth taking the time to go inside . There was a great atmosphere when we visited with loud orchestral music which initially I thought must be on a tape until high up I saw the organist playing live.
