ExplorAR set up its Durham Cityguide in January 2019 to provide independent reporting on events across County Durham, from family-friendly events through to festivals.

We find out what events are going on, and discover all the information you need in the buildup to the event. We also head out and report on events when they happen, take pictures and shoot videos to bring you the latest news from events across County Durham.

We also write about the history and heritage of County Durham as well as things to do in the county.

ExplorAR itself is a Durham-based business that specialises in creating virtual tours, web interactives and 3D modelling, and brings these skills to bear to tell stories in the Durham Cityguide, such as 360 images or interactive maps for Durham events.


Have you got an event you want listed on our website, or would you like to advertise with us? Then drop us an email on hello@explorar.co.uk. We're based in Durham so, if you are as well, we're happy to meet face to face too.
