Travel Information

Grey is a 5 minute taxi ride (about £3) from Durham Station. All the taxi drivers know the College, so you won't need to give them directions. Alternatively, if you're carrying light luggage, the walk from the station through town is picturesque and will take about 30 minutes. There is a tourist map on the platform.

The College is situated just to the south Durham City centre. There are limited spaces are available at the College which are subject to availability, please register your registration number at Reception.

Alternatively there is a park and ride scheme in Durham or you can make use of one of the close-by city centre car parks..
