The programme of regular activities gives Chilton residents the chance to try new hobbies and continue with existing interests, such as arts and crafts, games and flower arranging. Further facilities include a hairdresser, seated exercise sessions and a chiropodist. Just a short drive from Chilton are a number of wonderful attractions including Durham Botanic Garden, Durham Cathedral and the Museum and Heritage Centre.
