Situated in the heart of the City the Castle, along with Durham’s world famous Cathedral, forms part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Their staff have a wealth of experience catering for the most prestigious events, ensuring that the quality of service will match the unrivalled setting.

Durham castle can also offer a comfortable range of bed and breakfast accommodation within the Castle walls. Durham Castle is the perfect venue to hold a meeting within the heart of Durham City.
