Trains to Hexham

Hexham station lies on the Tyne Valley Line between Newcastle and Carlisle, serving the small market town of Hexham in Northumberland. Opened by the Newcastle and Carlisle Railway, and dating back to 1835, Hexham is one of the oldest purpose-built railway stations in the world, and home to a quite extraordinary piece of architecture. The station's platform building contains a black marble fireplace, which incorporates several fossilised cephalopods, thought to be approximately 400 million years old. The picturesque station is also well known for its floral displays, and has won several Britain in Bloom awards. Notable architecture extends into the town itself too, and Hexham boasts an array of historic, gothic-style buildings, most notably Hexham Abbey. The abbey dominates a lively town centre, which is also home to the Grade II-listed Moot Hall, The Old Gaol, and a busy modern high street.
