Welcome to Durham City! There’s a lot to see and explore in and around Durham City and the Durham Pointers can advise you on how to make the most of your visit.
The Pointers’ Directory
Every year, we visit most of the businesses in the city and compile our famous Directory, which is kept at the Trike in the Market Place.
- Eating and drinking – The Directory includes lists of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars and takeaways, coded to include information such as which are accessible, dog friendly, vegetarian/vegan, offer wifi and much more
- Transport – We have information on transport options to key attractions in the Durham area
- Businesses – Local shops and attractions are listed by type, so we can help guide you to whatever you need
As volunteers, we don’t aspire to provide a comprehensive tourist information service but on these pages we have gathered together some links to some of our own favourite spots around the city.
