Where to park

Hexham has plenty of parking either on street or in carparks although usually £1 parking disc will need to be displayed. You can get a parking disc from most business in Hexham. There are several on street parking spaces directly opposite Obscuria and there is a carpark 30 seconds walk on Gilesgate. Failing that you can find a space on Beaumont Street or the Wentworth Leisure Centre carpark although that is a 5 min walk and includes a short but steep hill.
