St Chad’s is remarkably situated at the very heart of medieval Durham, thirty metres from the magnificent Cathedral, not far from Durham Castle, and just a stone’s throw from Durham’s marketplace and historic streets.
Most of the College buildings, which line North Bailey, were formerly Georgian town houses, though the interiors have changed over the years. Beyond the back gardens, the land falls away into the wooded gorge of the River Wear which girds the high peninsula, once the citadel of the Prince Bishops and a symbol of Norman power.
If you are organising a conference or group trip, planning a meeting or holding a wedding reception, St Chad’s College could be the venue for you. We also offer three star Bed & Breakfast accommodation to guests visiting the North East. The College also has many years’ experience of planning and delivering pilgrimages and retreats to the many holy sites of Celtic North East England.
