Hares of Hexham

Hares of Hexham, 45 Fore Street, Hexham, Northumberland, 2016 • A sign sellotaped to the door of this traditional tobacco / sweetie / shaving emporium says “closed until further notice”. Sadly, it seems they never re-opened: Google Maps and their Facebook page say it’s permanently closed.

  1. Hares of Hexham will be rebourne as a barbershop , in keeping with the area but very much in vogue with both traditional and slightly hip to the modern discerning gent offering 27 years experience of tonsorial artistry . Keeping the famous name intact !! And An appreciation of the Hexham market town and It’s traditions . Coming to Hexham very soon !!!
