Here at the Durham Dales Centre we welcome thousands of visitors each year. Take a look below at some of our lovely feedback.

Nice little gift shops and a great cafe have a nice all day breakfast and some great Sunday dinners all at a good price!


The staff are always pleasant and helpful (even when run off their feet). The menu has a good selection and the food is homemade, would recommend the mince pie with all the trimmings.


Plenty of parking, nice shops and café very good food. We used the centre as a base for a walk around the quarry then back for food.
