Sunday 21 October 2018 - Friday 27 October 2023
Your visit to The Auckland Project will begin at Auckland Tower where you can find all the information you need to explore all our venues and the local area. Auckland Tower will be the place to purchase your entry tickets, get directions, and view our exhibition on the first floor, which is about our previous archaeological excavations and the Prince Bishops of Durham.
Your first point of contact will be our friendly Visitor Experience Team who will be waiting for your arrival. They’ll be on hand to answer your questions or help you decide which of our venues you want to see.
Auckland Tower also boasts its very own 29-metre high tower, with a viewing platform 15-metres up offering unsurpassed views across the Deer Park, the Market Place, and the rural landscape beyond.
