Discover Durham Tours are a great way to see Durham, both the city and the university.
The dates of our next Discover Durham Tours are to be confirmed. If you'd like to hear about our events when they launch please register your interest. In the meantime, if you would like to visit Durham you can undertake a self-guided tour using our brand new 'Durham University Tours' app.
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.
Tours begin at 1.30pm and last approximately two and a half hours.
These Discover Durham Tours are subject to Covid-19 restrictions and social distancing regulations.Please note that Discover Durham tours will not incorporate tours inside of individual departments.

We request all of our staff and ambassadors undertake a Lateral Flow Test before working on these tours and we request that all attendees please do the same.
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.
What I would say is so special about Durham is the opportunities it gives its students.
