County Durham - Camping and Touring Pitches and Attractions

Situated in the North East of England, County Durham is bordered by Tyne and Wear, North Yorkshire and Northumberland and is the only English county to be named with the prefix, “County”.  County Durham is recognised for its railway industry, farming and mining industry although if you were planning on visiting deep-coal mines, there are no longer any in County Durham.  Regardless of this, this intriguing county with spectacular countryside and coastline has plenty on offer.

Durham City, situated at the heart of County Durham, has a packed annual calendar with so many events and attractions to enjoy.  Durham even has the privilege of hosting the 2013 Ashes at the Emirates Durham International Cricket Ground!  If you love quirky, independent shops, the cobbled streets of Durham provide an abundance of boutiques and craft shops to wander around.  Whilst in Durham City, make sure to check out Durham Castle and Cathedral; Raby Castle; museums such as Beamish Museum (which recreates early 19th and 20th century North England life), The Bowes Museum (home to a fantastic collection of fine and decorative European art), DLI Museum and Art Gallery (places emphasis on WWI and WWII) and Locomotion: The National Railway Museum at Shildon.  There are beautiful gardens such as Durham University Botanic Garden, and Crook Hall and Gardens to relax in, and don’t miss High Force, the largest waterfall in England, which you can get to by following a lovely woodland walk.

The coastline of County Durham offers plenty of tranquil beaches to stroll along.  For some family fun, Adventure Valley in Brasside offers events such as Roller Disco, Battle of the Birds, Fish Frenzy and Chipmunk Challenge as well as a brand new Fort opening in May 2013.  There are outdoor and indoor play areas so perfect for any weather!

If you are a ship lover, make sure to visit Hartlepool whilst in County Durham and visit the HMS Trincomalee as well as the Hartlepool Maritime Experience, a re-creation of an 18th century seaport.  Summerhill Country Park and Outdoor Activities Centre is both a local nature reserve and an outdoor activity centre, and with most facilities free of charge, definitely worth a visit!
