Crook Hall and Gardens is a Medieval hall dating from around 1208 and a series of English gardens just a ten-minute walk from Durham city centre.

In addition to the Medieval hall, later editions to the building added a Jacobean manor house dating from the late 1600’s and a Georgian house and coach house dating from the 1700’s which are all available to view. The hall is reputedly haunted by a lady in white. The gardens are various English-themed gardens including a walled garden, a secret walled garden, a maze and wild flower meadow, a moat pool and fish ponds, the Shakespeare garden, a fruit tree orchard, the silver and white garden, a woodland garden, a vegetable garden with greenhouse and the cathedral garden.

  • Pay and display parking on site.
  • Courtyard Café and Georgian dining room serving light lunches and afternoon teas.

Opening hours from Sunday to Wednesday from 11am during April to September and Sunday to Tuesday for October, November, January, February and March. Just Monday and Tuesday in December.
