Future Plans 2016-2020


New Hotel

Encouraging visitors to spend more time in Bishop Auckland is an important part of our vision to regenerate the town and wider area.

The revival of Bishop Auckland’s Market Place will be supported by a new boutique hotel created from the former Postchaise and Queen’s Head hotels and will provide additional job opportunities for local people. 

It will sit alongside new and existing restaurants, hotels and shops in the town, so that guests spend more time and money during their visit to Bishop Auckland.

Ground surveys and feasibility studies have been carried out at the site and plans will be developed further as soon as possible.
