Durham has several hotels and B&Bs; some useful places to look are listed below.
Since the tournament is held during term time, accommodation in Colleges is likely to be limited. However, there may be some accommodation available, see Durham Colleges for more information.
A limited amount of crash-space may be available with student Go players for the deserving. Please contact us if you would like us to try to find some for you.
On Friday evening, Go players will be gathering in the Victoria Hotel on Hallgarth St (see the map on the meetings page of this site), certainly from 8:30pm and probably earlier. The Vic has three rooms; if you can't find us, ask at the bar, or just keep walking around the rooms until you find us.
On Saturday evening we will be descending en masse on a Chinese all-you-can-eat Buffet, before going back to the Vic again. There are many other eateries if you prefer and we can make recommendations at the time if you like.
There will probably be further ad hoc socialisation happening on Sunday evening for those who are not travelling home until Monday; quite what will depend on who!
Anyone who arrives on Friday evening is likely to find some Go players in the Victoria Hotel, on Hallgarth Street (map).
This year, the Durham tournament is happening on the same weekend as Durham Regatta.
