Best residential areas of Durham city.

My son, his wife and 2 children under 5, are moving to Durham city and are unsure which areas would be the best. They seem to think that St. Godric's school is good, so we're looking up houses for sale in that area. Any advice would be helpful. Thanks.

  • Some would say that property prices around Neville's cross are over inflated because of the excellent Johnson (once the old 'Grammar School' rebuilt I believe). I have no doubt that Belmont is an excellent area for shopping affordable housing, good schools and families, and Motorway access. Durham is odd in having pockets of very exclusive housing in Shincliffe and Potters Bank for instance you'll find million pounds sometimes not enough to buy you a home. Out on relatively high turn over Durham Moor 150,000 is an average I believe. Hard to be truthful without offending someone but I guess it's down to what you can afford. Hey I moved to Canada from Gilesgate which I dearly miss, and since I left people 'Park and Ride' from car parks around Durham so everything changes. Good hunting..
