Fowlers Yard

Fowlers Yard Durham DH1 3RA

Fowler’s Yard is Durham’s most creative and arty corner, a collection of small, red-brick warehouses that double as workshops and creative workspaces. You’re welcome to wander along and watch silversmith Andrew Ashcroft create intricate jewellery and pop next door to Julia Triston’s colourful textile warehouse. At number three is the embroiderer, Tracy Franklin, with a large quantity of rainbow-coloured skeins for sale. Both Julia and Tracy run classes and workshops. At the end of the row of warehouses is the friendly Hill Island Brewery – drop in for a taste of their bottled beers, all brewed in the city – and there's also a good coffee shop, Leonard's, down the yard, which has a few outdoor seats.
