Group visits

We'd love to welcome your group to The Auckland Project for a day of art, history and exploration.

The Auckland Project is located in the North East of England, just 11 miles from the city of Durham. Easily accessible by road or rail it’s the perfect place for a group day out; you can easily explore our full range of destinations and enjoy activities that appeal to visitors of all ages.

As the perfect addition to your visit, your group can enjoy a 10% discount on ticket admissions and on all home grown, locally sourced food in one of our cafes or restaurants and take home a unique handmade gift from the different shops across the sites.

Whether you’re looking for a quiet afternoon wandering the extensive parklands surrounding Auckland Castle, or you’d like to visit one of our art galleries, we can offer a trip that perfectly combines art, history and the outdoors.
