Discover Durham Tours are a great way to see Durham, both the city and the university.
We're running a set of Discover Durham Tours during October Half-term (Monday 24th October - Friday 28th October) and we're excited to invite you all to join us!
The tour begins at one of our undergraduate colleges, where you will receive an introductory talk from a member of college staff, followed by a tour of the college by current students. As our tours are during term time it may not always be possible to show you a student room as they are occupied. Durham Student Ambassadors (DSA) will then show you the main University site taking in some of the sights of the city.
The event as a whole is expected to last between 2.5 - 3 hours. It will involve quite a lot of walking so please wear comfortable footwear. Durham is a hilly city so please be aware of this when booking. If you have any mobility or accessibility requirements, please complete this section on the booking form and we will work to make all adjustments that we can.
Please note that these tours are not guaranteed to involve indoor tours of Department buildings and colleges other than the designated booked college and will not include meeting academic staff.
Please check your emails regularly as we'll update you with information about the tours and the launch of our events. We'll also send you emails to remind you of your upcoming tour and provide you with some helpful hints and tips.
