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.

Ushaw’s Main House, Chapels, Park and Gardens are open on Saturdays. The Cafe is also open on weekdays (Monday to Friday) each week.
