History Boards depicting the history of Alington House Community Association since the 1930's plus accompanying leaflet to take away.
This 17th century house on North Bailey was built on the remains of the Castle wall. It was extended in the 18th century, clearly illustrated by the front facade of the building. The windows offer a fascinating insight into the changing fashions of the period. Inside, various ages of building are evident, not least the 19th century staircase. The garden, which stands on the old Bastion Tower is under reconstruction and worth a look. The house has been a community centre since 1948, and was once the home of the Durham Castle guard.
Max 6 people per tour/session.
Upstairs of the house are not accessible for wheelchair users.
COVID-19 Considerations - This event will run in line with local & national government guidelines at the time of the festival.
