About Durham

The Durham Heritage Coast is perhaps one of the area’s biggest draws. If being close to the sea is something you’ve always dreamed of, looking for houses for sale in County Durham could be a great move for you. The wider region is home to industrialists, poets, and many media personalities, whilst the city itself houses two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Durham Cathedral and Durham Castle (now Durham University).

The city of Durham has a population count of over 65,000, and the present city can be traced back as far as 995 AD, with a rich history in carpet making and weaving. At the time of the Industrial Revolution, the city was also at the heart of the coalfields, which became the area’s main trade during the 19th Century.

Today, the whole of Durham’s city centre is a conservation area and, together with the famous Cathedral and Castle, there are also more than 630 listed buildings which add to its unique history and charm. The cobbled streets and amazing greenery certainly make it an incredibly picturesque location – one that’s a wonderful place to live and work without the high living costs experience in other major cities. In Durham, average property prices are considered to be very low, meaning that first time buyers will find it easier to get on the property ladder.

Whether you’re looking for East Durham homes close to the coast or Durham City homes that make commuting as convenient as possible, we can help you find your dream property today.

Things to do

It may be relatively small, but the city of Durham has much to offer when it comes to sights and attractions. Filled with history, UNESCO sites, striking buildings and a traditional cobbled high street, the compact city centre is a great place to spend the day.

When it comes to shopping, Durham promises to be a unique destination. With many independent shops and exclusive boutiques that can’t be found anywhere else, you’re sure to enjoy wandering from shop to shop. If you’re on the hunt for bargains, don’t miss the Durham Indoor Market which is the perfect place to shop for everything from food and drink to gifts and homeware. You can also venture to nearby Fowlers Yard, where you will be able to watch craftspeople in action as they create one-of-a-kind artisanal crafts.

Other sights within the city include Durham University Botanic Garden, Durham Museum and Heritage Centre, Wharton Park, the Oriental Museum, Old Durham Gardens, and Finchale Priory – to name but a few!

As a resident, you’ll be less than a 30-minute drive from the coastline where you’ll find a number of spectacular beaches for walks and relaxation. Whether you’re looking for houses for sale in Durham City or the wider county, you’ll never be too far from incredible ocean views.

Transportation

Public transport is handy for residents in Durham, as there are a number of travel options in and around the city. The bus routes are serviced regularly and can take you to locations across the wider Durham County region. Getting to the county’s principal towns is simple, unlocking a wealth of activities such as exploring the Durham Heritage Coast. Seasonal tourist buses are also available during peak months.

There is an excellent Park and Ride service across multiple locations around the city for commuters and visitors alike, and there are a number of local taxi companies for those in need of a lift. For drivers with electric cars, you will also be able to find plenty of charging points.

Whether you’re looking for houses for sale in Brandon and Belmont or houses for sale in County Durham villages such as Shincliffe, Newton Hall, Framwellgate Moor, Nevilles Cross and Langley Moor – getting around is easy.

Education

Home to the University of Durham, which is housed in the spectacular Durham Castle (a fortification that dates back to the 11th Century), this city is well-known for its contributions to higher education. The university itself ranks in world’s top 100 universities (in the World Reputation Rankings 2017). It has also been ranked fourth in The Guardian University Guide League Table 2018 and sixth in the UK in the 2018 Complete University Guide.

There are also a number of colleges and a wealth of superb school catchment zones that are suitable for families with children. Notably, County Durham is one of the best areas for primary schools and is one of just eleven local authorities to have more than ten schools listed in The Sunday Times School Guide 2018.

Whether you’re in search of East Durham homes close to the coast or Durham city homes, easy road connections will make school transport simple.
