Our friendly tour guide will take you through the gatehouse and into heart of the historic building. Here you will experience history and tales from 900 years of living history, with activities for children throughout the tour.
Take a tour around one Durham's most significant historic buildings with your family. Built on the orders of William the Conqueror in the 1070s, Durham Castle began life as a motte-and-bailey castle. It soon became a palace to showcase the wealth of the Prince-Bishops whose semi-regal powers made them one of the most powerful political and military men in the country.
