Visit County Durham has strategic responsibility for tourism and performs the functions of destination management and marketing in the county.
Many others are involved in delivering a vibrant visitor economy, one organisation cannot do it alone, which is why we are a partnership.

Record numbers are expected to holiday at home this summer due to ongoing coronavirus uncertainties.
Newcastle University Business School are conducting research into initiatives and capabilities that are key to tackling economic shocks for the rural tourism sector.
318 businesses across the county have been supported and over 3,500 jobs safeguarded through the Durham Business Recovery Grant which was launched by Durham County Council in January.
The Caterer, in partnership with VisitEngland, is running a staffing summit webinar on Thursday 22 July.
