CEOSleepoutUK – Durham 2017 Directions

Directions to Durham Cathedral – via North Bailey

Come up through the Market Place and head straight on up Saddler Street, which then turns into North Bailey.

As you approach the Cathedral along North Bailey, ignore the road on your right (signposted Cathedral and Castle) as this takes you onto Palace Green.  Instead, keep heading straight on.

You’ll pass the Rose Window end of the Cathedral on your right and then Chads College on your left.  Look out for a medieval archway on your right, which is the entrance to ‘The College’.

Turn right and go through the archway and you will see signs indicating a one way traffic system.  Follow these signs.  Parking is available in the Chorister School car park or in the Works Yard car park indicated on the attached map.

Due to a major event in the Cathedral please only park in these two car parks – if you have any difficulty parking please see the Porter on duty who will assist you.  The Porters Lodge is next to the entrance archway.

Once parked, please head towards the Cathedral, past the gates to the Deanery and the red door of Priors Hall.  Enter the Cloisters via The Dean’s Walk, and turn left in the Cloisters to head down to the Undercroft Foyer.
