Pocket Guide: 4 stars Hotels in Durham

Whether you are visiting County Durham for business or leisure, you can find dozens of superb four-star hotels to choose from. All offer impeccable hospitality and are ideal for corporate functions or romantic breaks.

Explore Durham's Superb Historic Landmarks and Museums

The two main focal points of this photogenic riverside city are its magnificent Norman cathedral and castle, both of which have earned Durham a place on the exclusive UNESCO World Heritage Site list. See the castle's beautifully preserved interior and Great Hall where students of Durham's University College reside, then visit the enormous cathedral and admire its intricate ceiling and medieval artwork.

Durham is also home to an elegant botanical garden, and an impressive collection of Asian-themed historic artefacts at the Oriental Museum. For more family fun, head to Diggerland UK, a superb construction-themed park where you can drive diggers and safely operated earth-moving vehicles.

Spend the Afternoon at Auckland Castle

This fine historic landmark is one of the finest medieval houses in Britain, dating back to the era of William the Conqueror. See its enchanting Throne Room and Dining Room, admire its beautiful painting collections, then explore the scenic parkland and spot the deer. The castle also has a charming tea room where you can treat yourself to a delicious lunch, home-made desserts, or some fresh cakes or scones with afternoon tea.

Visit Barnard Castle

Another imposing medieval landmark, Barnard Castle, despite its ruined status, is a striking focal point of the River Tees valley. Founded in the 12th Century, it was the home of the rich Beauchamp family before it was acquired by the Royal Family, and is adjacent to an attractive sensory garden.

Barnard Castle is also acclaimed for its Bowes Museum, which has a vast collection of European artworks from prominent painters.
