Welcome to Durham

Durham is an amazing county - explore breathtaking scenery, discover award-winning attractions and enjoy world-class exhibitions, festivals and events. From city breaks to coast and countryside escapes - a warm welcome awaits. 

Durham City is home to one of the most recognisable landmarks in the UK, majestic Durham Cathedral. Together with adjacent Durham Castle,  this UNESCO World Heritage Site forms one of the most stunning city panoramas in Europe. And in 2016, you can be one of the first visitors to explore Open Treasure, the Cathedral's brand new world-class exhibition spaces opening this summer.

The county is home to many more treasures too; step back in time at fascinating heritage attractions, or seek out hidden gems in market towns and villages. Relax and enjoy peace and tranquillity, or get outdoors and active with walking and cycling routes revealing unforgettable views. 

Don't miss fantastic events across the county, including fantastic festivals, enthralling exhibitions and the unmissable Kynren - an epic tale of England, which opens in Bishop Auckland in July.

And when it’s time to refuel you’ll be spoilt for choice with award-winning eateries and delicious local produce.
