Visitors at Durham Castle Self-Guided day

Built in the Norman period as an imposing fortress, Durham Castle’s story is entwined with that of the Prince-Bishops of Durham, whose semi-regal status made them some of the most powerful and wealthy men in the country.

Our friendly guides and volunteers will be around to share some of the stories and hidden history of the Castle with children's trails and activities on the day. 

Last entry 14.15.


£5 full price, £4.50 concessions, under 16s free

Tickets will be available on the day from Palace Green Library, located next to Durham Castle entrance.
