Prince Bishops Shopping Centre

The open air Prince Bishops Shopping Centre is located right in the heart of Durham, just a few leaps away from the historic Market Place. It is boasting over 40 leading brands, among them Bhs, Next, Boots and Clarks just to mention a few. After a successful shopping day, you can relax in one of the cafes or bars.


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.
