Probably one of the world’s greatest collection of Pugin family architecture, there are a whole host of reasons to visit Ushaw and its Park & Gardens, but wherever your interests lie, there will be something here for you to enjoy.
Ushaw is truly one of the hidden jewels in Durham’s crown and is steeped in history dating back to its foundation in Douai, France in 1568. Our stunning Chapels, Refectory, Exhibition Hall & Parlour are each must see attractions in their own right and the unique and tranquil atmosphere of Ushaw makes it a remarkable and incomparable place that you will want to return to time and time again.
Please be aware that the Refectory will be closed on Thursday 27th and Saturday 29th June. The cafe service will instead be in the Francis Thompson Room on these days.

REVEALING THE HIDDEN TREASURES OF A UNIQUE ESTATE
Ushaw is a unique estate with a significant collection of cultural and historic treasures. With the help of a Resilient Heritage Lottery Grant we are exploring a range of opportunities that will allow us to restore the Junior Seminary and St Aloysius Chapel, both of which are currently in a dilapidated state. We are generating a business plan to help us to proceed with these exciting projects, and updating our governance to better manage the estate sustainably going forward. Our overall aim is to open up the collections and welcome everyone to enjoy this exceptional Heritage and Cultural centre in the heart of County Durham.
At this stage in our year-long project we are welcoming input from the wider community around Ushaw, County Durham and beyond. To this end, on 2nd May 2019, we hosted a consultation event which centred around a slide show presentation that you can now view by clicking here.
If you have any comments, suggestions or queries please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our Project Manager, Bev Robinson, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
