'Durham University Tours' - brand new app

(23 April 2021)

Our brand new app, ‘Durham University Tours’ is available to download in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store now. It allows users to take virtual tours around the city from the comfort of their own home.

The app is powered by Guidebook and currently has two tours, a ‘General University Tour’ covering the main University and Department buildings and a ‘Colleges Tour’ taking prospective students around the 16 colleges they could be allocated as an undergraduate student. Each destination has an audio description, up to 10 images and videos including walking route videos to show the way to walk between stops and hopefully help the user feel as if they are here with us in Durham.

We will be adding new content in the coming weeks with new tours such as places to eat and drink, a tour of the practical amenities and a tour of activities and things to do in Durham.

Please feel free to promote the app to any prospective students who may contact you. If you would like to take a look at it yourself, please search 'Durham University Tours' in the Apple App Store or Google Play Store or use the direct download links below:
