Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Durham City is set on the sharp bend of the River Wear is compact with historic bridges winding alleys and yet it offers a full range of facilities. A wide range of shops and restaurants co-exist happily with the indoor Victorian Market and the ancient cobbled Market Place, much of Durham’s shopping area is closed to traffic, making for a more relaxed atmosphere. This allows the street entertainment to take place right in the heart of the City, particularly during July and August.

The monthly Farmers’ Market is where you will find fresh local produce and specialities to take back home. In the Spring and Summer, stunning floral displays adorn the City for which Durham regularly wins prizes.

Within just a few minutes, it is possible to escape the bustle of the cobbled market place by taking one of the many paths that lead down to the riverbanks. Watch the river for rowers from one of the university teams, or take the ‘Prince Bishop’ river cruiser for a gentle trip along the river with stunning views. A visit to Durham Castle and Cathedral a World Heritage Site, is a must, set in Palace Green these impressive and historic buildings along bring more than 500,000 visitors a year to Durham City.
