Worth a visit

The market is worth a half hour visit. It's a bit different in terms of stalls. Some traditional others more surprising. Amazing shoe shop and even a wine and gin stall.

I like this old market because its cosy and has different types of shops. From meat to toys you can find something that you might desire. Worth the visit, recommended.

Had a walk round the market- well worth having a walk round- you will find some thing to buy which you can pick up from your local super market! very nice old building-some history in the building

I enjoyed walking around this old market hall. it gave some insight to what it would have been like a hundred or so years ago and the tobacconist, such a rarity these days I am pleased to say, was fascinating and may not have changed much for decades apart from the health warnings. I did not find anything I needed... More

We were in Durham for an afternoon The indoor market is a great piece of English history, with the various shops, restaurant upstairs and a nice historical building. Definitely worth a look.

Worth a look around for a typical old market - I don't know the age but the entrances look very historic and contains a warren of aisles with all sorts of stalls and a mezzanine café looking out over the river

Great wee indoor market with big cafe area overlooking the stalls. Everything on sale, lots of different independent shops. Great for the community as well. Wish we'd had more time to see the rest of the shops as well. Brilliant.

Was rather disappointing that on the weekend of the Xmas market the stall holders were not all open and the Market was not very festive. A few Xmas decorations would have been lovely. Music outside in the square was very festive though.

Heading for the Cathedral and noticed the Market in the corner of the square so popped in for a look-see. Lively and with a good mix of produce and other stalls, it is well worth a visit when traveling through Durham.
