Must visit place in Durham. Money ( some) goes to charity, and one can get clothes, food, fish, meat, doggy stuff, restaurant and clothes. a great way to spend time and money wisely. Reasonably priced

While in Durham city centre we went for a walk around the market. You can quite easily loss track of time and before you know it an hour or more has passed.

Again worth a visit when you are in the Market Place, Durham City. A variety of stalls from card shops, veg shops, mineral/fossil shop etc. And not too expensive.
