Welcome to Durham the sign says. Where exactly is Durham? Well, it is a town in the North East of England in County Durham. It is most famously known for its Norman Cathedral and 11th-century castle. The castle has also been home to Durham University since 1832. Archaeological evidence suggests a history of settlement in the area since roughly 2000 BC.
The present city can be traced back to AD 995, when a group of monks from Lindisfarne chose the strategic high peninsula as a place to settle with the body of Saint Cuthbert, that had previously lain in Chester-le-Street, founding a church there.
With our high standard of transportation, we can take you where you want to go to Durham and the surrounding area. If you are unsure of what to see, we can make a few suggestions for you. Let’s start with the most obvious, which is, of course, the Cathedral.
Durham Cathedral is a World Heritage site and the author Bill Bryson wrote that Durham Cathedral is the best building in the world. Quite a statement, but one with which people entirely agree.
The outside is big, bold and lacking in the adornments of York Minster, however, in our opinion, it is all the more imposing because of it. However, it is when you go inside that the true magnificence of this building is revealed.
If you have been, you will appreciate what has been said; if you have not yet experienced Durham Cathedral, put it on your must-do list. You will not be disappointed. We offer cheap Durham minibus hire and coach hire for disabled travellers and group travel no matter how big or small.
For something different, but still historical (and fantastic for children) you need to visit Beamish Open Air Museum. Here you can travel back in time (so am a little bit like Back to the Future, but not quite) and see how people used to live from the Victorian era through to the ’50s & ’60s. Everyone will enjoy Beamish, be that from reminiscing or kids learning that there was life before the internet and Xbox. With our wheelchair accessible minibus vehicles, no one will miss the chance to explore around Beamish.
Now, is your child about to start Durham University? Well, why not let us take them for you. With our taxi hire or minibus hire vehicles, we can transport them and their luggage to Durham University (as stated before, this is within the castle.)

We were very pleased with the service we received. Our home is not easy to find but the driver had left plenty of time to follow our instructions when he phoned for help. He was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely use and recommend this company again especially for groups of 6 and above.

My family were going out to Christmas dinner on Christmas Day. The price was fantastic to take 10 of us out including multiple pick up and drop offs. The driver Atif was extremely pleasant, prompt and accommodating. Highly recommend and will definitely use them again. Kind Regards, Stephanie International Business Manager.
