Head to The Auckland Project for a day of art, history and exploration – and don’t forget to bring your friends
We want to keep everyone safe on our sites – so at the moment, we're not able to host organised group visits to the Auckland Castle, Mining Art Gallery, or the Walled Garden. If you would like to find out about our groups offer for 2022, please send us an email at the address below, and we will be in touch with details once they are confirmed.
The Auckland Project is located in the North East of England, just 11 miles from the city of Durham. Located 10–15 minutes from the A1, it’s the perfect place for a group day out; you can also explore our full range of destinations and enjoy activities that appeal to visitors of all ages.
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.
For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
