Stanhope

The town is a picturesque haven for visitors seeking rest and relaxation amidst beautiful surroundings; the peaceful waters of the River Wear provide an idyllic backdrop for those who enjoy being outdoor and active too, with the ford at Stanhope a popular location where walkers can cross the river using giant stepping-stones.

Cool down in the county's only outdoor swimming pool, or climb aboard the Weardale Railway for a journey through the spectacular scenery of Weardale.

Don't miss the opportunity to see the famous fossil tree which is approximately 320 million years old, or visit the 12th Century church of St Thomas - a reminder of the area's Christian heritage where the Victorian font is made out of Frosterley marble.

Pop into the Durham Dales Centre for visitor information and grab a bite to eat in the delicious cafe, and for more local visitor information on Discover Weardale website. Please note that not all accommodation on this site is inspected or accredited.
