Leisure and Spa
The leisure facilities open on 1st August, we have to adhere to reduced capacities which may cause difficulty in accessing the pool and gym. The steam room and sauna will be closed due to safety guidelines imposed upon us. We are currently working with the company who operate the club on our behalf to introduce a booking tool however this has not yet been finalised. In short I’m afraid we can’t assume all guests can access the facility with the distancing regulations we have to impose.

Guests are advised to book a preferred time on arrival or 7 days prior by emailing pace.durham@radissonblu.com so we can ensure social distancing is possible within the facilities to ensure the safety of all visitors.
