We went in here when looking for a wrist brace - and found it, to our amazement and it was much cheaper than in Boots Chemists! It seems they have everything in stock in this indoor market. We browsed for ages and were very impressed by the range of things on sale.

Went to the indoor Market recently and found an amazing shop called Bear Bottoms (toy shop) It sold some fantastic, rare toys and collectibles. There are lots of different stalls in there, appealing to all ages. Offers food stalls as well as bric -a - brak.

There are two entrances to the Market Hall off the Market Place which are quite close to each other. It feels like you are entering a different world in the Market Hall. There is an old fashioned look to the place yet many of the shops are selling the latest goods while others sell things that do look to come... More

This place is a little gem - history as well as charm. You will be able to find all sorts of nic nacks on here and it's in the heart of the city. There are also a few places to grab a coffee and a bite to eat.

Small and clean. Nothing more, nothing less that you would expect from such a place. Some household items and food.

From the brochures and website we were expecting some great local craft and food stores highlighting the Durham area but sadly it was a cheap flea market style. A quick walk through and we exited really disappointed. The monthly farmers market was on out the front and it was better but really only 4-5 stores (cheese, brownies, meats) I would... More

Brilliant craft stall, Crafty Nook, just inside the main entrance. Susan, the owner has a brilliant depth of knowledge and obviously loves what she does. Always smiling and ready to help, a real asset to an excellent market. The second hand book seller also always has a great selection

Prior to our planned visit to Durham my wife had worked out an itinerary for the day, as she always does when we visit somewhere new, and high on our list was this market. We were only in it about 3 minutes before she had made her first purchase, I kid you not! After about half an hour she had... More

This is a good indoor market. There's a stall for everyone and mine is the hand made shoe stall in the bottom left hand corner. They ain't cheap, but they'll last a lifetime. There's books, guitars, ribbons, local produce, a tea room upstairs, birthday cards, hardware, antiques, fish, watches, sports trophies, a tobacco shop and toys. There's a lot more.... More
