Durham

Bill Bryson called it 'a perfect little city' and Condé Nast's Traveller magazine readers voted it the 'Best city in the UK'.

Durham is a captivating city with narrow cobbled streets winding their way around the rocky peninsula leading up to the majestic Norman cathedral and castle. The cathedral and castle not only dominate the skyline, but are also a designated World Heritage Site – one of the most stunning city panoramas in Europe. Durham is a pleasure to explore and one of the finest cultural and historic destinations in the UK.

The quintessential old English University City, Durham has a wonderful timeless quality with rowing on the river Wear and relaxing riverside walks. On the flipside, it buzzes with a vibrant contemporary culture with superb cafés, artisan workshops, boutiques, galleries and museums. Just minutes from the bustling centre, you can enjoy the tranquillity of leafy riverside footpaths along the banks of the River Wear, or the changing seasonal displays at the Botanic Garden. The Oriental and Archaeological Museums hold fascinating collections of international significance, as well as offering key insights into local history.
