The Gates Shopping Centre

Located directly next to the riverside, The Gates Shopping Centre is hosting over 30 retailers all under one roof. From Charles Eagles & son to Wilkinsons or Thorntons, the Gates Shopping Centre has both a lovely inner mall as well as an outer walkway and is boasting a great variety of retailers.


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.
