We’ll gush (quite a bit) more in our ‘Durham city’ scribblings, but we’re not going to let our ‘campsites in Co Durham’ musings pass by without mentioning stonkingly brilliant Durham Cathedral. The eleventh century building has been voted the UK’s greatest landmark, and both it and Durham Castle, facing the cathedral on Palace Green, are part of a World Heritage site high above the Wear. Go.

We’ll leave it there (for now) to gush about other delights of a Co Durham camping hol: it might be a teeny county, but there’s enough to do here to keep you away from proper life for ages. Make for the Durham Heritage Coast first, a Site of Special Scientific Interest with a 550-acre nature reserve including ancient woodland at Castle Eden Dene. The Durham Dales and their market towns of Barnard Castle and Bishop Auckland are very much worth a tramp around too – stop off for a few hours in Barnard Castle for the eponymous building and a lot of excellent art at the very grand Bowes Museum. Old castles and churches also abound, and sprogs can be kept mollified with a decent Durham selection of family attractions including the most excellent Living Museum of the North at Beamish. Go.
