Durham Dales Gateway

The Weardale Railway provides an experience to complement those in the centre of town and one that has the capacity to provide a wide range of heritage and entertainment events through the year, including opportunities to draw significant numbers of visitors to the town through the winter months. At present, access to the Heritage railway platform is difficult and we propose to develop a new facility to include ticketing and visitor information for the Weardale Railway attraction next to the existing railway station.
