County Durham offers a plethora of activities and sights for everyone to enjoy. Head to Durham Cathedral and Durham Castle, both UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Here, you can marvel at the stunning architecture and take insightful guided tours. Alternatively, take a trip back in time at Beamish Museum. This world-famous living museum showcases life in North East England during the 1820s, 1900s, 1940s, and 1950s, providing an immersive historical experience.


Nature lovers will find plenty to enjoy in County Durham. The Durham Botanic Garden, located on the Durham University campus, offers a tranquil escape with its diverse plant collections from around the world. High Force Waterfall, one of England’s most spectacular waterfalls, is situated in the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and makes for a breathtaking visit. Hardwick Park is another beautiful spot, perfect for a relaxing day out with its walking trails, lake, and visitor centre.


For those interested in history and culture, the historic market town of Barnard Castle is a perfect day out. Explore the castle ruins (English Heritage) and visit the Bowes Museum, which houses an impressive art collection. The Locomotion Museum in Shildon provides a fascinating look into the history of railways with its vast collection of locomotives and artifacts. Finally, the medieval Raby Castle, Park, and Gardens (Historic Houses) is a fantastic day out for everyone. Built in the 14th century by the Neville family, it was the scene of the plotting of the Rising of the North and a Parliamentary stronghold during the Civil War.


The scenic beauty of Durham Heritage Coast and the Durham Dales is perfect for outdoor enthusiasts. Enjoy a coastal walk along the dramatic cliffs and beaches of the Heritage Coast, or explore the picturesque landscapes of the Dales through hiking and cycling. Auckland Castle, once the palace of the Prince Bishops of Durham, is another historical gem, offering rich history and beautiful surroundings.


Additionally, the summer brings various food and drink festivals that showcase the best of regional produce. For a relaxing day by the sea, Seaham Beach is ideal, known for its sea glass and charming seaside town atmosphere. Alternatively, head to Hartlepool to visit one of its many beaches.
