Discover Durham's history
The historic city of Durham is just 20 minutes by car. Comprising a UNESCO World Heritage Site, its cathedral and castle draws visitors from around the world. Durham Castle was built by the conquering Normans in the 11th century, who also constructed the magnificent Durham Cathedral in 1093, widely regarded as one of the finest examples of Norman architecture anywhere. The city is also famed for its pituresque bridges, including Kingsgate and Prebends bridges - both Grade I listed structures.
Walk Durham Heritage Coast
From Sedgefield, the gorgeous Durham Heritage Coast is only 30 minutes by car. Stretching from Sunderland to Hartlepool, it takes in some of north east England's finest seaside scenery, including the rolling dunes and dramatic North Sea vistas along the Durham Coastal Footpath, an 11 mile walking route from Seaham to Crimdon.
