Durham Shopping

Shopping in Durham

From Durham City to the Durham Dales, the Vale of Durham to the Durham Coast, soak up the atmosphere of this surprising county as you enjoy a little retail therapy. 

Stroll through the historic streets of Durham City, where you will find high street favourites jostling for attention alongside independent shops, boutiques and quirky craft shops in the shadow of the Durham Cathedral and Castle UNESCO World Heritage Site. Enjoy both indoor and outdoor shoping at The Gates and Prince Bishops shopping centres.

Looking for a bargain? Take a trip to Dalton Park, the biggest outlet shopping centre in the region. Durham’s market towns including Bishop Auckland and Chester-le-Street in the Vale of Durham, Stanhope and Barnard Castle in the Durham Dales and Seaham on the Durham Coast offer a warm welcome with their own unique character and charm. Browse through shops selling locally made arts, crafts and delicacies.  And don't miss the array of antique shops in Barnard Castle.

For a memento from a great day out, don’t forget to visit the enticing gift shops at attractions across the county to take home that special gift or souvenir, or take a taste of Durham home with you from one of our many farm shops and farmers markets.
