Watch sun rise and set over two of our most beautiful locations to help Durham shine!

Published January 22, 2018 7.39am

As part of our Celebrating Durham campaign we've teamed up again with the UK's largest publisher - Trinity Mirror - to live stream the sun rising and setting in Durham to promote our amazing county.

Tomorrow (Tuesday 23 January) you can watch the sun rising over our beautiful Heritage Coastline and sunset over Durham City's famous skyline which includes the World Heritage Site Cathedral and Castle. 

The views from Blast Beach in the morning and Wharton Park in the afternoon should be stunning so make a note to check the view from your PC, phone, tablet or laptop and experience our beautiful county in slow motion!

  • Heritage Coast 8am - 12noon (sunrise at 8.13am)
  • Durham City 3pm - 7pm (sunset at 4.22pm)

You can watch live at Chronicle: Help Durham Shine.

Previous slow movement campaign

On Wednesday, 1 November we live-streamed the sun rising over Cow Green in Upper Teesdale and then the sun setting over High Force, England's highest uninterrupted waterfall. The live-stream was very successful, reaching over one million people and prompting comments from as far away as New Zealand!

About Celebrate Durham

The 'slow movement' live-streaming is part of our major campaign to Celebrate Durham. We're working with a range of partners, including Kynren, to showcase our county on a global stage by focussing on Durham's vibrant cultural programme and it's unique offer as a fantastic place to live, work, visit and invest in.
