Killhope Visitor Information Point (Museum to remain closed)
Tel: +44 03000 262626
**A County Durham museum will not open to the public for the start of the summer season as planned. Durham County Council has taken the decision not to open Killhope at the beginning of next month, after an inspection revealed issues with the condition of some of the structures on the site therefore would not be fair to welcome visitors when they are not able to access the whole of the site.**
A unique Visitor Information Point, situated within the Reception at Killhope. Although the VIP is unmanned, the museum staff have extremely good knowledge of the local area and take pride in answering visitors' questions. More complex requests for assistance with things like accommodation, tickets and county-wide information will be directed to the Durham Visitor Contact Centre via a direct link telephone (free of charge to users).
A wide range of tourist information leaflets and maps can also be picked up during normal opening hours.
*Please note that this Visitor Information Point does not offer a full scale tourist information service.
