Leonard's Coffee House is situated in Fowler's Yard - the arts centre of Durham City.

Tucked away behind Durham's indoor market and beside the River Wear, Leonard's Coffee House is nestled among artists, photographers, jewellers and craftsmen.

We are open every day between 8.30am - 5pm (Mon-Sat) and 9am - 5pm on Sundays.

Access routes to Fowlers Yard can be found:
- On Silver Street next to Superdry (opposite Pret a Manger)
- Via stairs or a lift at the back the indoor market
- To the side of St Nicholas Church in the market square

Like most of Durham, Fowlers Yard is situated on a flagstone street. We have an upstairs seating area but our ground floor is accessible for wheel chair users and pushchairs.
