Official Visitor Guide

The Durham Pocket Guide is the official guide to the county. This year, more than ever, we are expecting a huge demand for information on days out and overnight stays/ short breaks from visitors as well as residents, eager for new experiences once lockdown has lifted.

The Pocket Guide is the ‘must-read’ publication for the area and is used by visitors and residents alike who are looking for information on what to see, where to go, things to do and places to eat and drink. With a long shelf life and 125,000 copies of the guide printed, it is available from hundreds of outlets across Durham. North Yorkshire, Cumbria, Newcastle, Northumberland and key entry points such as motorway services and train stations.

The guide is also mailed out to visitors upon request and downloadable from thisisdurham.com, the official tourism website for the county. Featuring sections for Durham City, the Durham Dales, the Vale of Durham and the Durham Coast, it is an essential promotional tool for your business. Advertising rates are extremely cost effective and Visit County Durham Partners also benefit from a 20% saving.
