We are organising a FREE trip for carers to Durham and Whitby, including an overnight stay (as well as Saturday night dinner + Sunday morning breakfast) at the Sporting Lodge Hotel in Teesside.

The trip will include coach travel with reserved seating throughout the trip – from Manchester to/from Durham to the hotel in Teesside on Saturday, then to Whitby and back on Sunday.

The trip is free but we would like to ask prospective attendees to give a £20 deposit, which you’ll get back in full when you join us during the weekend.

Here’s some information about the places we’re visiting:

  • Durham

    Saturday afternoon will be spent exploring Durham, a historic city in the North East and known for its many Grade I and II listed buildings, including the Durham Cathedral and Durham Castle. The whole centre of Durham is considered a conservation area, and the cathedral & adjacent 11th-century castle are designated World Heritage Sites by UNESCO. We could enjoy the city’s historic architecture before heading to the Sporting Lodge Inn in Teesside for the night.
