Auckland Tower is the starting point for visits to The Auckland Project. Here, you can find all the information you need to explore. Scale the Tower to the 15m-high viewing platform, offering unsurpassed views across Auckland Park, Bishop Auckland town and the rural landscape beyond.
After visiting Auckland Tower, experience life through the eyes of prominent mining artists at the Mining Art Gallery, located nearby in the Market Place. With three permanent galleries and one temporary exhibition space on the ground floor, the gallery explores working life in the coal mines through original artefacts and artworks by mining artists such as Tom McGuinness and Norman Cornish.
Visit aucklandproject.org to keep up to date with venue openings, as well as exhibitions, events and activities taking place throughout the year.
