Things to do in Durham

Welcome to Durham

Home to one of the most recognisable landmarks in the UK, Durham Cathedral, Durham is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and has one of the most magnificent city panoramas in the whole of Europe, making it a great spot for a city break in England.

Whether you wish to explore the iconic landmarks, wander through the cobbled city-centre streets, immerse yourself into a 70-foot waterfall, or take a trip to Seaham where you can get sandy feet and tuck into fish ‘n’ chips and ice cream, we’re sure you will have a memorable time.
