Eventually you reach the heart of Durham University’s Queens Campus and here you are able to access the Infinity Bridge. Cross the Bridge and head back down the River path, passing some house overlooking the river. On your walk back down the river towards the White Water Centre expect to see other walkers, cyclists, boaters and rowers.
Tees Barrage will be standing out on the skyline ahead of you.
The route is fully pathed and off road, making it ideal for families.
