Durham University


Self-Guided Tour

You can explore Durham City on your own with the help of our self-guided tour and map of Durham City. Copies of the tour can be picked up from the reception in the Palatine Centre, Teaching and Learning Centre, Calman Learning Centre and our libraries. Durham is a beautiful city and you can collect more information about Durham, the city and its surrounding area by visiting the official Durham Toursism website This is Durham.

A copy of the self-guided tours leaflet is available and we have some 360 photographs that might also be of use in helping you to become familiar with the univeristy and the surrounding area.

Why not team these up with visits to our academic departments and colleges? See the arrange a visit section, but please don't turn up without having contacted the departments/colleges beforehand as we want to make sure there is someone available to see you! Don't forget if you have any question just ask us.

However you choose to visit we hope you have a wondeful experience and look forward to welcoming you.
