The Green is situated on South Road, close to Durham University and two miles from Durham Cathedral, the medieval castle and the historic town centre.

The local area

In keeping with its stature as a major tourist destination, Durham offers a plethora of shopping opportunities. Prince Bishops, in the heart of the city, counts high-street brands and independents among its occupants, while The Riverwalk – between Leases Road and Framwellgate Bridge – includes several stores and restaurants, and is set to grow further with the opening of a six-screen cinema, additional restaurants, bars and shops during the summer of 2018.

Well-known stores, boutique and independent retailers, as well as traditional pubs and cafés can be found along Silver Street, Saddler Street and Elvet Bridge. Market Place is home to Market Hall, which offers a variety of food, clothing, gift and homewares stalls within the restored Victorian building six days a week, while an outdoor market is held every Saturday and a farmers’ market is hosted once a month in the square.

The medieval city of Durham welcomes visitors from across the globe, drawn by its Romanesque cathedral and 11th-century castle. In addition to the stunning architecture of the castle and cathedral, the city possesses many historic buildings along its ancient streets. Crook Hall, two miles from these new homes in Durham, dates back to the 13th century and is surrounded by five acres of themed gardens. Further afield, Aukland Castle and Deer Park, nine miles away, Barnard Castle, 23 miles away and Beamish Museum, 11 miles away are all popular destinations with visitors.

Cultural highlights include the Gala Theatre and Cinema on Millennium Place, which presents a comprehensive programme of live comedy, music, drama and family entertainment, as well as independent and mainstream movies, and the Lumiere festival, which bathes the city centre in colour by way of a collection of light installations and takes place every two years.

For sports enthusiasts, Freeman’s Quay Leisure Centre and Durham City Golf Club, are both around 10 minutes by car from The Green. The area also has active rowing, football, archery, rugby and cricket clubs.

There are a number of well-regarded schools in the area, such as St Margaret’s CE Primary, Neville’s Cross Primary and St Oswald’s Church of England Aided Primary and Nursery schools for younger children. Durham Johnston Comprehensive School and St Leonard’s Catholic School cater for secondary-age pupils, while Durham Sixth Form Centre provides a range of A level and post-16 vocational courses. Independent schools include Durham School, The Chorister School and Durham High School for Girls.

New College Durham and East Durham College both offer a selection of apprenticeships, further and higher education courses, while Durham University, founded in 1832, is one of the world’s foremost universities, coming in at 97th in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2018.

Durham Railway Station is eight minutes’ drive from the development and from there mainline services run to Newcastle, Berwick, Edinburgh, Darlington, York and London Kings Cross, among other destinations.

Major roads easily accessible nearby include the A167 and the A1. Durham Tees Valley Airport is 35 minutes’ away by car via the A167.
