How to Find Us

Cranmer Hall is part of St John’s College at 3 South Bailey, Durham, DH1 3RJ.

As a visitor to the city, arriving by train or coach is by far the easiest option. If you book in advance there are often some very good deals on train tickets. Long-stay or overnight parking in the centre of Durham is difficult, although there are some options.

If you are coming by train or coach it takes approximately 20 minutes to walk from the railway station and slightly less from the bus station.  There is a taxi rank at the railway station, and at the Framwellgate Bridge end of North Road.  There is also a ‘Cathedral Bus’ which runs between the railway station and the Cathedral (which is then just a couple of minutes walk to Cranmer Hall), leaving the station at 20 minute intervals.

If you are coming by car, please note that, due to building work taking place at the college, we are currently unable to offer you parking close to the college,  Overnight parking is possible at:

  • Prince Bishops multi-storey – good security and 5 minutes walk to college
  • Durham station – good security and 20 minutes walk to college or use the ‘Cathedral bus’

Once on foot in Durham, you should make your way to the Market Place and then along Saddler Street.  Keep on this road, which becomes the North Bailey.  It leads on to the South Bailey, and you will pass the Cathedral on your right hand side.  The main entrance to St John’s College, Haughton House, is an 18th century building set back behind railings on the left-hand side of the road.

Go up the steps to the main entrance, and report to Reception, and someone will direct you.
