Two Hours with the Best Durham Attractions 

Discover the people, places and events that shaped Durham from its earliest history to today. This compact Durham history tour is the perfect introduction to this beautiful city.

This historic tour through Durham will cover the history of Durham City,  from the Ice age to the modern day Durham. Durham has resisted both the Scots and the Normans throughout its history; it also developed into a regional capital, enjoying considerable influence in Medieval times and beyond. Unsurprisingly, the city was shaped and inspired by its amazing Romanesque Cathedral in the city centre. On this tour we will tell you the stories of this city and show its much-walked streets. This tour is perhaps the best ways to see Durham during a visit to the North East, but if you’d like a slightly longer experience, consider our Half-day Walking Tour of Durham instead.

Durham’s Fascinating History

From the Ice Age to the modern day, Durham has a fantastic story to tell. The city has resisted both the Scots and the Normans throughout its history, developed into a regional capital, and been shaped by its stunning Romanesque Cathedral in the city centre. On this tour, you’ll hear many of the city’s amazing stories as you walk its picturesque streets. 

This tour is one of the best ways to see Durham during a visit to the North East of England and, if you’d like to tick a few other incredible attractions off your bucket list, take a look at our Sightseeing Tours of Newcastle and our Northumberland Tours and Attractions.
