In a commanding position above the Rivers Wear and Gaunless, Bishop Auckland's importance as a river crossing was recognised by the Romans, whose line of supply along Dere Street lies directly below today's main thoroughfare. Settled by early traders, the little village flourished and grew around the country seat of later residents - the powerful Prince Bishops of Durham. With patronage such as this, the town prospered to become a bustling market town whose twice weekly market still thrives today in the charming square.

Remaining the focus of interest and activity in the town, in the Market Place you're greeted by the romantic, chateau-style facade of Bishop Auckland Town Hall. Completed in 1862, and recently renovated, it is the town's cultural heart. Just off the Market Place, through an imposing gateway, Auckland Castle rests impressively in 800 acres of landscaped parkland. The result of lavish spending by the Prince Bishops, today's Gothic splendour dates from extensive remodelling in 1760, when it became the Bishop's main residence.

A short drive from the centre of Bishop Auckland will take you to two superb examples of even earlier ages. To the north-east can be found finely preserved Roman remains at Binchester and, to the west, the gem of the Saxon church at Escomb. Explore these and the other villages around Bishop Auckland and discover the rich history of this part of the world.
