All the businesses on this webpage are members of Weardale Visitor Network, a supportive group of local businesses who promote tourism in the area and encourage visitors to explore our beautiful region. We also have a Facebook page Discover Weardale in which we advertise events around the area, so its well worth looking there as you plan your visit. Partners of the Network include ‘Visit County Durham’, ‘Weardale Area Action Partnership’ and ‘North Pennines National Landscape’ who attend our meetings and update us about events and happenings in the area relevant to tourism.
