See world-class sport in Durham this spring bank holiday

Chester-le-Street, Durham

Get a warm north east welcome and see the England cricket team play once again on the ground where they dramatically clinched the Ashes in 2013.

Head to Durham this spring bank holiday weekend to see the England cricket team take on Sri Lanka in the Investec Test Match at the Emirates International Cricket Ground in Chester-le-Street.

Turn the match into a short break with a stay at Lumley Castle, the dramatic hotel which overlooks the stadium, and explore more of what the Vale of Durham has to offer. Experience the history and heritage of Chester-le-Street first hand by following the town’s Heritage Trail to take in the key sights, including St Mary and St Cuthbert’s church, parts of which date back to the Saxon period.

And don’t miss nearby Beamish Museum, England’s largest open air museum, or head to Beamish Wild treetop adventure course for some action-packed family fun.
