Welcome to Visit County Durham - the tourism management agency for County Durham which works on behalf of businesses and public agencies to support the growth and development of the county's visitor economy.
Visit County Durham has strategic responsibility for tourism and performs the functions of destination management and marketing in the county.
Many others are involved in delivering a vibrant visitor economy, one organisation cannot do it alone, which is why we are a partnership.
