Rather a run down town centre full of empty shops , however they appear to be making a effort with the redesign of the market square. We didn't really explore all of the town as we only stayed over night. Though it is a good central location for exploring Durham county.

Didn't really visit any of the tourist places as we were there to see relatives, we have however been there before on a number of occasions and have always received a warm welcome from the local people

A small town so easy to walk round.Surprised at how many shops were in the area. We were visiting family but it seemed a good location for site seeing. Plenty of dining choices in the town.

Lovely historic town surrounded by lots of beautiful countryside. Perfect rural retreat and yet a stones throw away from big places like Middlesbrough, Newcastle and Durham. Well worth a visit and is one of my favourite places.
