Although it's only a half-hour drive on the A69 from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, the Northumberland town of Hexham offers visitors the chance to step back into one of the region's best-preserved historic towns.
The remains of Hexham Abbey date back to 674AD, while the town's church dates from the 12th and 13th centuries. Hexham's historic Old Gaol was completed in 1333 and was England's first purpose-built prison. Even Hexham's market is unusually old -- the Shambles is a Grade II listed covered market that was built in 1766.
Hexham is also a great base for exploring the surrounding countryside and for visiting Hadrian's Wall, which was built by the Romans to separate Scotland and England. The town lies between Kielder Forest Park to the north and the North Pennines Area of Natural Beauty to the south.

A typical range of rental vans is available from local branches:
