It's one of the oldest university towns in the country, has a cathedral with architecture that outshines many in its class and holds celebrations throughout the year.
The Unesco World Heritage site of Durham cathedral is third only in religious significance to Canterbury and York but excels them in architectural splendour. It's been called the finest example of Norman architecture in Europe and there's no doubting its imposing beauty and incredible interior.
With Durham Cathedral visible from just about every part of the Durham, there's a constant reminder of the importance of this northern city. Another treasure that Durham holds dear is Durham Castle. It was built as a motte-and-bailey fort in 1072 and was the home of the Prince Bishops of Durham.
Walking through Durham is a pleasure as, not only do you have the great buildings to view on your journey, there's the River Wear, with its gurgling sounds to soothe you, winding streets, ancient Market Place and pedestrianised shopping areas. If beautiful gardens are more to your taste, Crook Hall and Gardens is a 14th-century manor house surrounded by very English gardens and featuring exotic plants from all over the world.
Taking a trip down the river is a delight you wouldn't want to miss. You can either enjoy it from a river cruiser or get closer to the action by hiring a rowing boat and whisking the family away down the flowing waters.
