Durham Cathedral needs little introduction, but if you’re planning on attending a concert, there are a few useful things to know.

  • Most concerts take place in the main cathedral building. Chamber music and smaller choral events also happen in Chapter House or Prior’s Hall: see individual event listings for details. You can get to The Chapter House and Priors Hall either through the cathedral, or by going via The College.
  • Seating is generally unreserved: for popular concerts in the main building, prepare to arrive about 30 minutes before the start time if you want a good choice.
  • There is no parking near the cathedral, unless by special arrangement. Street parking in Durham is free after 6pm – Church Street or Quarryheads Lane are good places to try.
