Why move to a new build home in Durham?

You're unlikely to run out of things to do in Durham. The city centre is packed with independent retailers, local eateries and historical buildings that are ready and waiting for you to explore. Here are just a few reasons why this north-east hotspot is perfect for you and your family.


Durham is a thriving city full of history and culture. The famous Durham Cathedral and Castle both form a designated UNESCO World Heritage site and create a mesmerising city skyline.

At the heart of the city centre lies a bustling marketplace, which hosts a vibrant outdoor market every Saturday. You'll find a wide range of local independent retailers and street food stalls there while, if you'd prefer to shop your favourite high-street names, Prince Bishops Place is Durham's number-one retail destination.

The locals love a riverside stroll. The idyllic River Wear surrounds this cathedral city and provides fantastic views of the surrounding landmarks as you walk along the peaceful waters.

Take a trip to the historic Wharton Park and admire glorious views of the city from this open green space. The park has its own heritage centre, café and play area, making for a fun family day out.


Durham has an impressive selection of schools rated 'Good' or 'Outstanding' by Ofsted, meaning there's plenty of opportunity for your child to receive a quality education from one of the many primary and secondary schools available in and around the area.

The University of Durham, meanwhile, is considered one of the most prestigious universities in the world and is currently ranked eighth in the UK.


While Durham is a relatively small city, the area is well-connected to neighbouring towns and cities. Trains to Newcastle and Darlington run regularly and the local bus services provide a convenient way to explore the county.

For travel by car, the A1(M) is the closest motorway, allowing locals easy access in and out of the city. If you're heading abroad, Newcastle International Airport is just a 35-minute drive away.
