Kingsgate BarBars Cafés & Shops


Kingsgate is the main Union bar. It's at the back of Level B past Reception - it has a good selection of lagers and beers on draught and a wide range of bottles and spirits.

Kingsgate's location in Dunelm makes it a great place to meet up after lectures or possibly the best place in Durham to meet people when going out in the evening. You don't get a much more central spot for the price.

There's outside seating on the balcony and this is also the designated smoking area. It has a lovely view of the world famous Durham Cathedral, the Kingsgate bridge and the river Weir.  In the summer when the weather's nice we have a barbecue out on the balcony with a wide range food and snacks.
