The Market Tavern

This is one of the city’s oldest and best loved pubs. The Market Tavern is conveniently located in the centre of the shopping district and perfect for a quick drink and maybe a bite to eat at a reasonable price.

Bars & Nightlife

Like all major towns and cities, Durham has a lively and kaleidoscopic bar scene. New fashionable and trendy bars are opening all the time, while the more traditional and quintessential British drinking house, the pubs, remain ever popular with locals, students and tourists. With its cobbles, centuries of spiritual heritage and old-world feel, Durham is perhaps not normally associated with a lively up to the minute nocturnal scene. However, the nightclubs do what they do very well, particularly those around the North Road district of the city.
