Crushed Chilli Gallery

In this art gallery in the city centre you can find unique and hand-crafted contemporary art including paintings, sculptures, ceramics and glass, jewellery as well as textiles. Each item is individual and crafted by high quality art glass. Watch how the glass is transformed at the onsite working glass studio.


Despite its compactness, Durham offers a wide range of shopping options amongst the intimate lanes and atmospheric narrow streets, much of which is closed to traffic making for a pleasant and relaxed experience. Its Victorian Market, monthly Farmer’s Market add additional colour and life on selected days throughout the week while The Prince Bishop’s Centre and Gates’ Centre offer all the high street and designer brands one could wish for. Unique to the city is the Fowler’s Yards, where artists and craftspeople create and sell their specialities such as glass, metal and textile work. There is even a micro brewery.
