Visiting Durham

Described by Bill Bryson as a ‘perfect little city’ Durham is a quintessential university city with cobbled streets and cosy pubs. The Cathedral and Castle World Heritage Site is the City’s crowning glory and guided tours are recommended.

There’s a vibrant cafe culture and it’s easy to lose an afternoon wandering around the artisan workshops, boutiques, galleries and museums. And come evening the city offers plenty in the way of intimate restaurants, trendy bars and theatre.

Tips: There are lovely views of the Cathedral and Castle from the river, where visitors can take a stroll or even a boat trip.
