County Durham Experience Gifts

Durham City is the county’s historic heart. Set on the banks of the meandering River Wear, the city was founded in 995 AD when monks brought the body of St. Cuthbert to rest on the high peninsula. Patron saint of the North, Cuthbert’s shrine still resides within the edifice of Durham Cathedral. Widely considered among the finest examples of Norman Architecture, it’s a real must-see for visitors – the imposing exterior, soaring arches and vaulted ceiling sure to stir the imaginations of believers and non-believers alike. 

Durham Castle lies just opposite the cathedral and offers guided tours to the public, though the building is now occupied by the University College. The city’s large student population contributes towards a lively atmosphere – it’s winding cobbled streets dotted with artisanal cafes, independent galleries, boutiques and welcoming pubs. Those looking for a moment’s peace can also head to one of many green spaces, like Wharton Park, or take a tranquil stroll by the river. Celebrated travel writer, Bill Bryson, called Durham a ‘perfect little city’ and it certainly won’t take visitors long to understand why.

Covering the western half of the county, the Durham Dales are a haven for walkers and cyclists. Expect stunning views over lush moors, hills and valleys; scenic villages and sleepy market towns – not to mention one of the country’s most spectacular waterfalls. The River Tees cascades over a drop of 70 feet at High Force in Teesdale. Accessible by footpaths on either bank, this mightily impressive example of nature’s sublimity is a real must-see. Those who prefer their power measured in horses can then tackle some of the Dale’s rugged terrain from behind the wheel of a Land Rover Defender on a One-Hour 4x4 Trek.  

Durham’s rugged coastline boasts more wonderful scenery – with scenic cliffs, beaches and headlands – as well as a variety of rare flora and fauna. For hikers, the well-marked Heritage Coast Trail is the best way to explore the area. The 11-mile route traverses wooded coastal denes and grasslands vibrant with wildflowers, butterflies and Skylark song. If you’re more of a thrill-seeker than a poet, you can even enjoy an aerial view during an exhilarating tandem skydive! 

For another insight into the county’s fascinating history and culture, visitors should head to the Vale of Durham and its variety of attractions. Auckland Castle, in the charming town of Bishop Auckland, was the palatial home of Durham’s Prince Bishops for more than 800 years and houses celebrated artworks by the 17th-century artist, Francisco de Zurbarán. Further north, you can really immerse yourself in the county’s past during a visit to the Beamish Museum. Interact with costumed townsfolk in this strikingly authentic, living museum and discover how life was in the 1820s, 1910s and 1940s.

Durham is a remarkable county with a great deal to offer curious visitors. An Experience Days voucher would make an unforgettable addition to your next trip.
