County Durham

Discover secret woodland walks leading to thundering waterfalls, hilltop castles and Roman forts in County Durham. Make a pilgrimage to the northeast's own World Heritage site and marvel at Durham Cathedral in all its Norman glory. The 325-step climb is worth the effort for views across the River Wear and hilly Durham Dales. Lace up your hiking boots to tramp the lush grassland and heathland along the Durham Heritage Coast. Look out for merlin and mini birds of prey. Mountain bikers can tackle rugged off-road trails under the shady canopy in Hamsterley Forest.
