Durham Walking Tour

Delve into Durham's history strolling through its charming streets and discovering its major landmarks on this guided walking tour - the ideal way to know this city.

Durham Walking Tour

After meeting at the selected time at Durham Station, we'll begin a walking tour of the historic centre of this British city.

We'll cross over the River Wear and stroll through the medieval streets of Durham's old town towards the market square. During our walking tour, our guide will tell us all about the history of Durham and how it became an important commercial town during the Middle Ages thanks to the many pilgrims who came here. In the marketplace, we'll get to admire the façade of the historic St Nicholas' Church.

From there, we'll make our way to the Elvet area, where numerous charming buildings dating from the 18th century await us. Here we'll find Old Shire Hall, a Victorian building which stands out for its striking red bricks and green dome.

We'll also tour the university area of the city and cross back over the river to get close to Durham Cathedral and the city's Norman castle, monuments from the 11th century. Did you know that both are UNESCO World Heritage Sites? As we admire the landmarks, the guide will reveal curious facts about them. 

Our walking tour of Durham will come to an end after two hours outside the Cathedral.
