County Durham Tourist Information & Accommodation
Let us help you plan your ideal vacation in County Durham...
Durham is the county town of the aptly named County Durham.
Once part of the ancient Northern Kingdom of Northumbria, the border area between England and Scotland, for centuries, County Durham was ruled by its vice-regal Prince Bishops who made a major contribution to the area's rich and unique history.
The County's fascinating blend of Christian, social and industrial heritage, combined with some of England's most beautiful and unspoilt landscape, will surprise and delight the most discerning visitor. Come and see for yourself - you'll find there's plenty to see and do including:
• The historic City of Durham.
• The lovely unspoilt scenery of the Durham Dales.
• Beamish, The North of England Open Air Museum.
• The Josephine and John Bowes Museum.
• Impressive Castles.
• Industrial heritage.
The County's proximity to Hadrian's Wall, Lindisfarne, and the Northumberland Coast, Scottish Border Country, the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District makes it an excellent touring base. A wide choice of "value for money" accommodation and, most importantly, a warm friendly welcome, makes this an ideal holiday destination.
