Picture 60 Albert Street in Durham, Durham, North England Location

’60 Albert Street’ is a Victorian Town House situated in a quiet conservation area of the city. It lies between Wharton Park and Flass Vale, retaining a quiet, country ambience in the centre of a busy market town. The street itself remains one of Durham’s most architecturally interesting and originally preserved streets. It lies just off the busy shopping area of North Road, which in turn leads to the river banks and market square.

Historical sites, notably the cathedral and castle, are only a ten to fifteen minute walk away, and the Botanical Gardens, Durham Light Infantry and Oriental Museums are easily accessible by foot. For theatre lovers Durham’s newly built Gala Theatre and Conference Centre is also centrally located.

For guests staying in the city on business Albert Street is a particularly convenient location for visiting County Hall, The Passport Office, University of Durham, Land Registry, City Council Offices and both University and County Hospitals. It is also within thirty minutes drive/train journey of Newcastle, Sunderland, Gateshead, Washington and Darlington.

Durham also makes an excellent base for exploring the surrounding National Parks. Northumbria to the North, the North Yorkshire Moors and Dales to the South, and the idyllically unspoilt Weardale and Teesdale to the west are all excellent areas for walking, and easily accessible by either car or public transport. There are regular buses to both Beamish and Bowes Museums and Lindisfarne and the Alnwick Gardens can be reached by train.

Albert Street itself is only a short distance from the railway station with frequent trains to excellent shopping destinations such as Newcastle, the Gateshead Metro Centre, York and Edinburgh.


The aim of the establishment is to offer a quiet, friendly and relaxing atmosphere within attractive surroundings. As only six people are catered for at any time guests can expect to receive a high standard of service, coupled with home cooking. Both English and Continental breakfast are served each morning with a good range of choices available for all tastes/diets.

Each room is equipped with colour television, tea and coffee making facilities, hairdryer and radio. They are all either en suite or have private bathroom.
