Vote 4 Durham!

If you’ve ever visited our beautiful and diverse county, you will soon realise why it has been nominated for ‘Best UK Holiday County/Destination’ in the British Travel Awards 2014.

A visit to Raby Castle is enough reason to be nominated (we think, but we’re biased!), but visiting us also provides the perfect opportunity to explore more of the Durham Dales, and discover more of an extraordinary county. From attractions to incredible natural wonders and stunning scenery, the Durham Dales and North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty will take your breath away. Couple with that award winning museums, beautiful scenic coastlines, historic cities and picturesque market towns there’s more than reason to holiday here and keep the whole family entertained in wonderful County Durham.

The British Travel Awards are the largest awards programme in the UK created to reward the best companies in travel. Members of the public will be able to vote for their favourites across the broad range of award categories; covering everything from Best Family Holiday Company right through to the UK's Best Coastal Town. Durham is up against Cornwall, Devon, Lancashire, Northumberland and Pembrokeshire and needs as many people as possible to cast their vote.

As a reward, voters will be entered into a draw to win a range of prizes ranging from a two-night break in Barcelona, a seven-night stay in Egypt and an eight-day cruise on the Danube. What more excuse do you need. Visit and get voting now!

So whether you’re a resident of Co Durham, have friends and family living here, perhaps you’ve only just discovered the delights that are on offer, or you’ve been visiting us for years and just can’t get enough of the place, the county needs you to cast your vote to help Durham win and spread the word visit:
