To find accommodation in the Durham area the first website below provides a comprehensive list. Unless you have your own transport we recommend staying in Durham City, or if you are happy with a short train ride of 15 minutes or so and you would like the bright lights, Newcastle city centre. We cannot vouch for all of the accommodation listed here, and although some establishments give you the option of booking through the sites below, some places will prefer it if you book with them directly, so probably wisest to contact them to confirm availability.
