Bat walk

Friday 30 August at 7:45 PM

Take a gentle stroll along the riverbanks to find out more about the bats of Durham. You may see pippistrelles, daubentons and noctules foraging for food. The walk starts at the north door of the cathedral, off Palace Green. Bring a torch and please wear sturdy footwear as there are steep slopes. All children must be accompanied at all times by an adult (not suitable for very young children).

£5 per person - booking is essential.
