Discover Durham Tours
Discover Durham Tours are a great way to see Durham, both the city and the university. We offer Discover Durham Tours during October, November and December for those considering applying and through April for those holding offers to study with us at undergraduate level.
Confirmed dates for our offer-holder tours include the 3rd, 4th, 5th, 23rd and 24th of April. Booking is now open.
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. 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 hours.
Please consult our Frequently Asked Questions link for useful information before you make a booking.
You are required to book in advance, using our online booking form, for Discover Durham tours as places are limited. Once you have booked your place, you will receive a confirmation email.
Please note that Discover Durham tours will not incorporate tours inside of individual departments.
