New homes in Durham

The medieval city of Durham offers a mixture of culture, history, attractions and scenery. So whether you’re looking for urban-living or a more laid-back pace in one of its market towns, buying a new home in Durham won’t disappoint.

Durham Attractions

The city is home to the Durham Cathedral and Castle World Heritage Site, where you can step back in time and learn about the history that’s shaped the area. Shoppers will be delighted with the selection of high street brands on offer, while you can find that unusual gift in one of the city’s quirky stores or independent boutiques. Further choice can be found by visiting market towns such as Bishop Auckland, Stanhope and Seaham.

The Beamish ‘living’ Museum is one of the city’s top attractions and tells the story of people in North East England throughout the Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian eras. It boasts a town, railway station, farm and colliery, which all demonstrate life in various periods.

For those who enjoy life in the great outdoors, heading into the Durham Dales and North Pennines - an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty - will give you plenty of opportunity to don your walking boots and breathe in the fresh country air. Walk through landscapes of heather, dales, meadows and villages. Alternatively, jump on two wheels and enjoy the spectacular scenery from the saddle.

The waterfall at High Force is awe-inspiring, while woodland walks can be taken at Hamsterley Forest. Further attractions include The Bowes Museum, Emirates Durham International Cricket Ground and Raby Castle.

There is a huge selection of primary, state and independent schools in Durham making the area a great choice for families.

It’s also home to the prestigious Durham University; a world top 100 university.
