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.

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. As our tours are during term time it may not always be possible to show you a student room as they are occupied. 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 and a half hours.

Please note that Discover Durham tours will not incorporate tours inside of individual departments.

Tours for Offer Holders

Unfortunately, due to the uncertain situation emerging with Covid-19, we have taken the difficult decision to cancel any Discover Durham Tours taking place in April. Offer holders will instead be invited to attend an online Post-Offer event taking place in early April. Offer-holders will be contacted via email with further details.
