The town centre hosts an arts complex should you be in search of a bit of culture, whilst there’s a range of independent shops to peruse, where you’re certain to find the perfect holiday keepsake. A short drive eastward from Butterknowle brings you to bustling town of Bishop Auckland, elevated above the River Wear and known as the Gateway to Weardale.On the outskirts of the town you can wander the ancient stones of the Binchester Roman Fort, the largest in the county.
