Due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control at Palace Green, all planned events as part of Balloons InDurham at this location have now be re-arranged to take place at The Sands, as part of the Durham Pride celebrations. Our thanks to the organisers of Durham Pride and the Freeman of the City for inviting Balloons InDurham to this event. Click here for more information.


Shopper’s paradise? You’re in the right place! Take a walk through the cobbled streets of Durham City where you’ll find high street favourites alongside independent shops, boutiques and quirky craft shops – it really is retail heaven! What’s more, you can enjoy both indoor and outdoor shopping experiences at The Gates and Prince Bishops shopping centres. And while you’re here, don’t forget to check out Durham Markets too.

NEW FOR 2016 – From Thursday 19th May, you can shop 'til you drop a little later in Durham City with the launch of late night opening. Each and every Thursday you can experience Durham's retail offer for longer into the evening.  Don't forget, Belmont Park & Ride is running later each Thursday too, so getting to and from the City is super simple for late night shoppers.
