The Durham Round

What is The Durham Round?

The Durham Round is a circular walk that roughly follows the edges of the County Durham, in the North East or England, a country in the United Kingdom.

The Durham Round starts and ends in the historic city of Durham. The route starts in the Market Place, following the River Wear and then heads East towards the coast at Seaham, following on South down the coast past Peterlee, and heading inland just North of Hartlepool.

From there it heads through Stockton and around the Southern edge of Darlington, before rising North again towards Barnard Castle and heading into Weardale and the North Pennines. Heading North East to the top of county, it takes in Consett and Stanley, before heading South through Chester-Le-Street and back along the River Wear into Durham City.

A total of 155 miles or 250 km.
