Bus Travel in Durham

Explore this glorious medieval city without having to drive through its steep and narrow streets!

The UNESCO World Heritage Site city of Durham lies on the banks of River Wear. Residents, tourists and its university students can enjoy heritage attractions such as the ancient Durham Cathedral, Durham Castle, riverside walks, the indoor market, high street & independent shops and cafés. Why not end your day with a trip to the theatre?

We offer 15+ routes around Durham so why not explore the city by bus. Take the bus to Adventure Valley, the North East's biggest family adventure park, or head to the historic sights of Bishop Auckland. Let the bus take you to the bright lights of Newcastle, Middlesbrough, Sunderland or Hartlepool. We also run buses between Durham and nearby villages.
