Durham Castle is only a five minute drive from the A1(M) and a ten minute walk from Durham Station. Durham Castle offers uniquely different university style accommodation in its grounds. This magnificent 11th century castle is part of a World Heritage site, with beautiful Durham Cathedral next door. As Durham Castle occupies such a fantastic location, it’s no wonder that budget travellers and backpackers flock to stay here. It’s really easy to explore the rest of Durham from this location too.
As you would expect from such affordable accommodation, the rooms are simply furnished. Some of them have private bathrooms and the rest share facilities. After a good night's sleep you will awake to a full English breakfast being served in the Great Hall of Durham Castle, which is included in the price of your room. You can also join one of the guided tours for free too (subject to availability). In the evenings you should frequent the lively bar, where you can catch up with friends or make new ones.
