Market Tours

Did you know that the site of Durham Market Hall was at one time the location of a work house?  Long before that there was a palace and gardens belonging to the Neville's of Raby on the site...

How come in the mid 1800s it became home to Durham's Market Hall?  And how has the Market Hall changed in the subsequent years?

Find out all the answers to these and any more questions you have on our FREE monthly history tours of the Market, with Historian and Archivist David Butler. 

The tours take place on the 2nd Thursday of each month, starting at 10.30am at the top of the main Market Hall ramp.  Tours can be popular and numbers are limited so please reserve your place by calling Karen on 0191 384 6153, or email durhammarkets@yahoo.co.uk .
