Find the best Durham walks. The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional resource for all walkers, hikers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to leader led walks to any really arduous walks within the St Johns College area.

Find A Walk Near Me by Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

Walking, Hiking and Outdoor Shops

Another good one. Walkingworld has huge library of guides with a good selection of walks, of varying lengths and grades, pretty well anywhere in the UK. The walks come in an excellent format making them very easy to follow, with photographs to illustrate every important decision point and a proper Ordnance Survey map.

A modist annual subscription gives you unlimited access to all the walks. However you can Pay As Go by downloading indiviual walks.

Crucially you can also find walks France, Spain, Norway, Portugal and Australia!

Camping and Caravaning

Durham Grange Caravan and Motorhome Club Site

Meadow Lane, Durham DH1 1TL, UK – 0191 384 4778

Great site - very convenient for visiting Durham. Mostly caravans and motorhomes, but with a nice camping area. Plenty of showers, private wash basins and toilets - spotlessly clean. Washing-up facilities but no fridges or freezers as far as well could see (camping pitches all have hook-ups).

Very comfortable, welcoming site. Easy to find and, despite its proximity to the motorway, we slept well and didn't find the road noise to be too intrusive. Extremely well-kept site with a genuinely warm welcome to boot from the lovely wardens. Facilities are excellent, great shower block - warm and very clean . Very good motorhome service point with recycling/water/chemical loos located around the site. We took a taxi to and from the site to Durham. The cathedral is really interesting and we very much enjoyed the "Treasures" exhibition there. Pleasant lunch at Venners cafe - homemade quiche, very tasty and decent-sized portions too. We will definitely stay here again the next time our travels take us to the North East.

Low Carrs Residential Park

Durham DH1 5HG, UK – 0330 005 0121

I go here with work quite often. It's very quiet and seems a really lovely place to stay. The caravans are very warm no matter the weather

New build, residential area. Nature reserve close by, good for walks

Littleburn Ln, Langley Moor DH7 8HA, UK – 0191 378 0146
