Take in the Sights
Famous for its 11th-century castle and Norman Cathedral, Durham is one of the most beautiful cities in England. It has recently been voted in the UK's top 15 cities by Travel Bible, and in 2007 was named 'Best City in the UK' by Conde Nast Traveller readers.
Bill Bryson calls Durham 'a perfect little city', and labels Durham Cathedral 'the best cathedral on Planet Earth.'
Durham has something to offer in every season - from the beautiful tree-lined riverbanks in full autumnal colour to the carol services in the Cathedral at Christmas, springtime walks in the surrounding Durham Dales and international cricket at nearby Chester-Le-Street in the summer.
Whenever you visit, you are sure of a trip to remember.
