The Durham Brewery Ltd

Visit the oldest brewery in Durham to view a working micro brewery, but also sample or buy bottle-conditioned beers, minicasks, gift packs or t-shirts. This is the perfect place to obtain beers directly at the source and learn something about the history of beer.


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.
