Browns Rowing Boats

Browns Boathouse 3 New Elvet DH1 3AF 0191 386 3779

We say

For the best view of the wooded riverbanks that shroud Durham’s cathedral, head to Brown’s Boathouse beneath Elvet Bridge, where you can hire little rowing boats for an hour. You’ll have to share the water with the big river cruiser, The Prince Bishop, as well as the Durham’s premier rowing teams – just don’t get in their way or you’ll soon be treading water.
