History Walk through Durham scenery

A chance to step back in time with popular history walk

Durham Cathedral’s popular History Walk returns this summer, offering visitors a chance to explore the fascinating heritage of the woodlands and riverbanks at the heart of Durham City.

A walk will be taking place on Saturday, June 24, at 10.30am. The walk will be guided by an expert walk leader and will offer a unique insight into what lies behind the beautiful scenery surrounding the famous Cathedral.

Pam Stewart, Learning Officer (Outdoors) at Durham Cathedral, said: “One of the aims of our history walks is to encourage local people and visitors alike to use the woodlands and riverbanks area for leisure.

“We hope many people will sign up to enjoy the history walk and make the most of the chance to learn more about this wonderfully peaceful and tranquil spot around our wonderful Cathedral.”

The walk starts at the Visitor Desk inside the Cathedral and lasts for approximately one and a half hours.

Taking part in the walk costs £3 for adults and any accompanying children can go for free.

Due to popular demand, reserving a place in advance is essential. To reserve a place please contact events@durhamcathedral.co.uk or call 0191 386 4266. Participants are asked to dress appropriately for the weather on the day and wear sturdy footwear.
