Queen's Hall is a five minute walk from Hexham Train Station.
On leaving the station, cross the road at the pedestrian crossing and turn left. After a few yards turn right through some metal bollards and head up the pedestrian path (Orchard Road) which borders the playing fields. Cross the road ahead and carry on up the pedestrian path (which turns into Hall Bank and then Hallgate.) One you reach the flat, carry on and cut through an archway (the Edinburgh Woollen Shop is on your left) and you will come out into the Market Place. With the Abbey to your right, walk up the main road (Beaumont Street) on the left hand side and Queen's Hall is opposite the main park gates.
This walk is up a slight incline and may not be suitable for elderly or infirm people.
From the new Hexham Bus Station, opoosite Hexham Hospital, walk along Priestpopple passing the HSBC and NatWest banks, until you reach Beaumont Street on the right (this is a main road with a park on the other side). Queen's Hall is on the right hand side of Beaumont Street - opposite the main park gates and before you reach the abbey.
