Lumiere is a festival that brightens the city of Durham, bringing a sprinkle of winter magic. More than 50 artists will create a breathtaking series of installations, illuminations and performances using light. 'Lumiere' will turn the city into a winter wonderland, transforming its stunning buildings, streets and riverbanks. We visit on the opening night (the quietest night of the four-day festival). We use the park & ride facility, suitable clothing and footwear should be worn as you walk around the town and enjoy the event.
The 3 star Best Werstern Derwent Manor Hotel is a comfortable and well-appointed hotel offering hospitality within quality modern surroundings. There is a restaurant and various bars to relax in. All bedrooms are en suite with TV, telephone, tea making facilities, hairdryer, iron and ironing board, complimentary toiletries and Wi-Fi. The hotel has a swimming pool, sauna and gym. There is a lift to most bedrooms although many still have steps to climb even on the ground floor.
We travel to Barnard Castle for lunch and shopping before continuing to the Derwent Manor Hotel for overnight half board accommodation. Our evening meal has been arranged for 5pm to allow us time to transfer into Durham to experience 'Lumiere'. Buildings, bridges, rooftops, shop windows and major attractions will be lit up and the city turned into a living canvas of light and sound by international and North East based artists.
We return to Durham with free time for shopping and sightseeing before we travel home, arriving late afternoon.
