Durham Coach Meet and Greet Service 2021

The Durham City Pointers are gradually restarting from July 19.

 However we do not  have sufficient volunteers to operate our normal Meet and Greet service. 

The Coach Drop Off point at Freemans Place DH1 1SL is a five minute walk from the city centre. We suggest that you ask your passengers to walk up to the city centre/ Market Place where the volunteer Pointers in their distinctive pink tabards will be pleased to help.  They will be by the map board, near the man on the horse statue where your passengers can collect a free Durham Pointers map and information leaflet. 

You are welcome to let us know your arrival details so that the city centre Pointers will be aware of your visit. Phone 07582 332 621 or email durhampointers@gmail.com.  

The Go-North-East 4OA Cathedral bus service is running from the drop-off point to the Market Place and Cathedral. The bus leaves the drop off point at 10 past and 45 past the hour from 10:10 to 15:45 six days a week.
