Perhaps it’s the stunning countryside nearby or the preservation of Durham’s ancient buildings that inspire us, but at the Honest Lawyer Hotel we are sensitive to the environment around us. We consider it our responsibility to help protect both our natural and historic location. We believe passionately in Green Tourism and hope guests will follow our lead in recycling, reducing waste and conserving energy and water.

The hotel is very well served by local bus services and we actively encourage guests to leave their vehicles at the hotel and take public transport instead to help reduce congestion in the city and cost for guests.

We support the Woodland Trust with donations and promotions. We use some Fair Trade products in our rooms and restaurants.
