St Chad's College is set on a dramatic site in the shadow of Durham Cathedral. Beyond the gardens, the land falls away into the wooded gorge of the River Wear which flows round this high peninsula, once the citadel of the Prince Bishops.
The College fronts onto North Bailey, a medieval street that traces the spine of the peninsula southwards from the Market Place to Prebends Bridge.
Our central location makes St Chad's the ideal base for exploring the city and surrounding countryside, with a museum, restaurents and the beautiful river walk within walking distance. Attractions within easy driving distance include the Bowes Museum, Hadrian's Wall and the North Yorkshire Moors.
Accommodation is situated in one of our historic houses which are far older than their frontages suggest. Breakfast is served in the elegant Moulsdale Hall with a choice of English or Continental breakfast served. Tea and coffee-making facilities are in each room which contain original features.
Bamburgh, Alnwick and Lindisfarne are easily accessible by car and you can also visit Holy Island and the beautiful Northumbrian Coast.
Accommodation is available during univeristy Easter and Summer vacation periods.
