County Durham Certificated Locations

With internationally recognised attractions such as Durham Castle and the North Pennines, County Durham makes for a wonderfully relaxing staycation.

Established as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the North Pennines is a heavenly landscape of hills and meadows that are perfect for ramblers.

Durham Castle and Cathedral are two UNESCO-accredited sites and some of the finest examples of Norman architecture in England. Be sure to take a tour of both to learn about their history, dating back to the 11th and 12th centuries.

Don’t miss out on the local cuisine, either. Mutton and grouse are both popular, and there are plenty of alternatives for vegetarians or vegans.
