Journey through time at The Auckland Project
One of County Durham’s newest destinations, The Auckland Project is home to over a thousand years of history, art, culture and faith.
Located in the market town of Bishop Auckland, the destination is built around the recently re-opened Auckland Castle, once home to the Prince Bishops of Durham, powerful men second only to the king.
It also includes a Mining Art Gallery, where visitors can experience life through the eyes of prominent mining artists, including Norman Cornish and Tom McGuinness. There’s also Auckland Tower, with a 15m viewing platform that offers views across the town, the Castle grounds and the surrounding Deer Park. More destinations will open soon, including a Spanish Gallery, Walled Garden and Faith Museum, along with cafés and restaurants to suit a range of tastes.
The Auckland Project is a destination unlike any you’ve come across before. By becoming one of our first visitors, you can help us to breathe new life and opportunities into the local community.
