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.
