Hidden Gems

Head to the Vale of Durham where there are hidden gems around every corner.  Watch out for roman footprints in the bath house at Binchester Roman Fort, where parts of the 1,700 year old under floor heating system are still visible. Get a sense of mystery from Escomb Saxon Church, where you can witness 1,300 years of Christian worship at a building which looms out of the darkness of history to baffle you with a real sense of mystery which no amount of reasoning can resolve. When was it built? Who built it and how has it survived so long? Add to the mystery by collecting the key to the church from number 26 Saxon Green and discover this hidden gem for yourself.

Crook Hall & Gardens in Durham City is a medieval manor house tucked away behind Durham City’s river banks, an oasis of peace and tranquillity, Crook Hall is a real hidden gem surrounded by glorious gardens. Enjoy a quintessentially English experience as you get lost in the medieval maze, discover the Secret Walled Garden, Shakespeare Garden, and Cathedral Garden.
