At the heart of one of the most diverse counties in England lies the spectacular city of Durham. To the east it is possible to explore the sublime Durham Coast, while the Durham Dales offer extraordinary landscapes punctuated with beautifully quaint villages.

Culture and history combine in Durham with the Cathedral and Castle, a World Heritage Site, dominating the stunning panorama. Enchanting cobbled streets make exploring this fascinating city a pleasure, discovering caf�s, boutiques, markets, galleries and museums.

Further afield, Durham County has much to offer visitors, young and old alike. Home to the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Durham Dales are a cornucopia of delights. Such delights include the magical market town of Stanhope with its craft shops and the Weardale Railway, from where one can take a scenic trip to Wolsingham.

Visit England's tallest unbroken waterfall with a walk to High Force, where the River Tees drops a spectacular 21m. In the charming market town of Barnard Castle, stop in at the Bowes Museum to see its outstanding treasures.

Explore the 14th century Raby Castle within idyllic walled gardens and expansive parkland. Cycle, walk or ride horse-back through Hamsterley Forest or experience a miner's life at the North of England Lead Mining Museum in Killhope.

The lively harbour town of Seaham is home to one of the country's oldest churches and events in Bishop Auckland bring 2,000 years of history to life. Nearby, at Binchester Roman Fort, see the best preserved Roman military bath house in Britain. The award winning Beamish Museum tells the story of the people of North East England.
