We frequently hit the headlines for our world-leading research and events.
A pioneering scientist from our Department of Psychology collaborating with researchers from University of Birmingham, Eindhoven University of Technology, Netherlands and World Access for the Blind, Placentia, USA have discovered for the first time that human echolocators have better acuity in localising a target placed 45° off to the side as compared to straight ahead at 0°.
Our unique cultural attractions include Durham Castle, Botanic Garden, Palace Green Library, Oriental Museum and the Assembly Rooms Theatre.
Covid-19 restrictions mean many of our sites are unable to open in the usual way but you can still still enjoy a wide variety of performances and exhibitions, an extensive programme of public lectures and a whole host of online exhibitions and other activities. Whatever your interest, there's something for everyone to enjoy.
We are fully committed to returning to live music events when it is safe to do so, but until then our online events will allow you a unique opportunity to hear some fantastic pieces, both old and new, and to ask questions as you go.
Ushaw Historic House, Chapels & Gardens is an independent charity set in a majestic estate of 500 acres, in the heart of the Durham countryside. It's well known for its exciting programme of events, exhibitions and collections each year.
The Institute of Advanced Studies Lecture Series is aimed at those involved in interdisciplinary research, or who wish to contribute to wider debates.
