A new coach drop-off point has opened in Durham City, replacing the former site at Freeman's Place.

Coach drop-off and pick-ups are now at Framwelgate Waterside (post code DH1 5TA). From Framwelgate Waterside you can walk up to the city centre, or catch the Durham Cathedral Bus, which operates from the bus stop adjacent the coach drop-off point.
