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.

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.
