Positive Reviews

Plenty of places to eat out

If you are one of those travellers who love to try out a different place to eat every day, then that's exactly what you will be able to do when you visit Durham Castle in Durham. Some guests have suggested that you try Bella Italia, a traditional Italian Restaurant offering a variety of delicious pizzas and pastas.

Lovely walks close by

Many visitors enjoy a stroll down to the Durham University Botanical Gardens, less than one mile away, while the surrounding gardens provide tranquil surroundings for those who enjoy a good picnic outdoors. The banks of the nearby river also attract nature lovers who enjoy a good brisk walk.

Load of shopping right on the doorstep

If you love to shop, then you will find yourself so close to the centre of town, that shopping could become a daily occurrence. Many guests take a short walk to town early in the morning for a quick breakfast, then shop until the afternoon, and head back for a late lunch at Treats on the way to Durham Castle.
