Durham Holiday 2019
24/07/2019

We shall be staying at Redworth Hall, Newton Aycliffe where we will visit The Bowes  Museum, Raby Castle, Ushaw College, Durham Cathedral, Nostell Priory, The Navy Museum at Hartlepool and  take lunch during a river cruise in Durham. We hope to visit Durham Castle but since it is home to Durham University we shall not know if it will be open to the public until approximately one month before our  holiday.   

On Saturday evening we shall be attending Kynren, a spectacular event  with a cast and crew of 1000 depicting the history of England. Please note there will be a walk of about 300 metres from the coach to the event and anyone who does not wish to attend should confirm this when booking.

There will be a drinks reception at the hotel before dinner on Wednesday evening.

Report
