Durham Pointers: Tourist Assistance

Are you visiting Durham? Looking for places to go? Things to do? We provide information for tourists and residents in the heart of Durham City

Welcome to Durham

Durham Pointers provide a volunteer tourist information service in Durham City

If you’re visiting Durham and looking for tourist information, you need a Pointer. In our distinctive pink tabards we provide visitors with a warm welcome to our beautiful city. We can help you to find your way around and provide you with information about the city and its treasures. Come rain or shine, you’ll find us based in the Market Place next to our faithful trike, which holds a range of useful leaflets and maps, every day from Easter to October.

We were delighted to add the 2018 North East England Tourism Award Gold Award for top Visitor Information Provider in the region to our existing 2017 Gold Award. We were also very proud to receive the prestigious Durham County Council’s Chairman’s Medal in May 2018, further recognition of our contribution to the city.

As a volunteer run service, we are entirely dependent on the generosity of others to help fund our service, so we are very grateful to all our sponsors and supporters. If you would like to make a contribution toward funding our services please use our Local Giving page.
