5 Days of Fun in Durham and Something for the Weekend

In the past, I have lived in Durham and I still work a lot in Durham, so with half term approaching fast here is a week of child-friendly activities to enjoy in Durham before the wintry weather kicks in.

On Monday take a walk through Hamsterley Forest.

On Tuesday get bewitched at Hardwick Park, with Wizard School and a welly walk 

On Wednesday take a step back in time at Beamish Museum. 

On Thursday, have an autumn adventure at Auckland Castle’s by exploring, engaging with nature and trying your hand at a host of exciting bushcraft skills. Plus arts and craft activities inside the Castle’s 17th Century St Peter’s Chapel too. 

On Friday, head to the Durham Heritage Coast to beach comb and discover treasure.
