Lambton Park consists of over 1,000 acres of spectacular natural landscape with a remarkable history that dates back to the 11th century. As the ancestral home of the Earls of Durham, the park has remained inaccessible to the public for most of its history. However, as part of a major regeneration, much of this green expanse has been opened up to the public, allowing everyone to enjoy its magical charm and verdant beauty.

A little further afield, you could be breathing the fresh sea air on Seaham Beach within 20 minutes by car, while the North Pennines are around half an hour away.

For more excitement, it’s a 15-minute drive to Durham’s historic streets, packed with independent boutiques. Newcastle’s unique city centre is also easily reached, along with the world-class shopping on offer at Metrocentre in Gateshead – both around 20 minutes by car.

All of this is easily reached via great local transport links. The A1 makes road travel simple, passing nearby as it carves a continuous line all the way from London to Edinburgh. Rail links are also strong, with Chester-le-Street Station sitting on the TransPennine Express line between Newcastle and Liverpool Lime Street.

History of Lambton Park


Lambton Park, the ancestral seat of the Earls of Durham, with a heritage stretching back to the 11th Century and a distinct sense of place, is one of the most intriguing historic places in the region.

Over 1,000 acres of historic park and woodland provides an oasis of calm and tranquillity on the edge of the urban fringe, set against a backdrop of dramatic views of Lambton Castle, in its prominent position high above the wooded River Wear Gorge.
