Walking Tours In Durham

Preservation Durham has a neat thing to help you get your exercise and to get familiar with all of the old, historic buildings downtown. The Walking Tours are one of the great things to do in Durham, and we think you will enjoy them.

Experience the historic sites all around Durham.

On the second, third and fourth Sundays of the month, between April and November, visitors are treated to a special journey. You’ll walk through historic Durham and you’ll learn plenty of the details that built this beautiful city.

The history of the tobacco industry and Durham’s civil rights legacy feature prominently, as well as the architecture of the beautiful buildings.

The walking tours are free, and begin around 10:00 on the specified Sundays. Check the calendar to see which tour you would like to take. The official Preservation Durham Facebook page is updated with inclement weather information that affects the tours.

Walkers are encouraged to wear weather appropriate clothing and comfortable shoes. In the heat, bring a bottle of water. If it’s cold, some hot tea or coffee will keep you warm through the tour.
