A really enjoyable city. with plenty going on in and around the market square and on the river Although a little hilly in parts there are a number of lifts from the river up to the city and down of course. There is a rather enjoyable river trip, offering quite good views of the surrounding banks,bridges and the Cathedral. Very... More

Great little indoor market selling all sorts from fresh fish to silk ribbon. I was amazed to come across a little cake decorating shop selling specialist cake icing tools and decorations. Didn't expect to find that in a market. It's well worth a visit.

We stumbled into the glories within Durham Town Hall by chance, attracted by an art exhibition in the foyer. A leaflet on the counter prompted us to ask whether the Town Hall was open to visitors. Not such a daft question as this is still very much a working building. We were fortunate that a meeting had just finished and... More

In the old days you could rely on Woolworths to sell you a few nails or odd buttons but now you can go to Durham's indoor market. All the old services you thought had disappeared are here in a mediaeval- like setting; you walk downhill into the dark and crowded chamber to find a hotchpotch of stalls and eating places.... More

As it was very cold and wet the indoor market was a good choice. Also nice and warm in there not like the hotel we stayed in

Great if you want a watch repair, key cutting or show repair or are into arts and craft and want to buy supplies. The only issue with it its rather cramped but apart from that a very good indoor market.

It was like going back in time. Lots of small stalls with loads of character. Something for everyone. My home town has been robbed of all its market character. You should be proud of your wonderful market hall.

This place is worth a look for the architecture and atmosphere even if you have no intention of spending any money although there is a wide variety of stalls, many of which have goods for sale at reasonable prices. The cafe is good and very cheap (jacket pot with beans at about £2 ish). There are also free toilets.
