One of the midway places along Hadrian's Wall, Hexham is located in the heart of Northern England. As one of the two more populated cities along the Hadrian's Wall Path (the other being Haltwhistle), Hexham is easy to reach by either bus or train from Newcastle-Upon-Tyne or Carlisle, and within a reasonable distance of the wall, fascinating historical attractions, and Hexham hostels in the surrounding area. Roman forts are prevalent along this area in varied condition (but mostly ruins), especially along the wall. Buses run from Hexham along both directions of the wall, making it easy for the traveler without a car to reach any of the main attractions on the wall, and are inexpensive (especially in comparison to the train).
Some attractions worth visiting include the Housesteads Fort, Vindolanda, and Birdoswold Fort. There are several other attractions in the area as well, and most of them are easily reached by bus for a very inexpensive price. National Trust and English Heritage manage many of the attractions, so if you have a membership, it will be put to good use here.
While it is a busier place in comparison to some of the other cities, Hexham is not very inexpensive, so if you can, stock up on food and supplies in either Carlisle or Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. However, there is a food Co-Op and some other stores where you can meet any basic traveling amenities.
Hexham has a bustling atmosphere during the day, and several pubs to keep visitors entertained during the night. It's definitely a good place to check out, but be sure to spend some time on the beautiful landscape surrounding the area as well.
