Dating back to the 11th Century, Durham Cathedral is one of England's most complete Norman landmarks. 143 metres long and 66 metres high at its tower, the cathedral replace a Saxon church, and is noted for its impressive Romanesque architecture and stone nave vault that has stayed intact for more than nine centuries. The building also exhibits many impressive medieval wall paintings, and has a restaurant serving delicious freshly prepared meals.
Durham Cathedral was used as a filming location for the Harry Potter films 'The Philosopher's Stone' (2001) and the 'Chamber of Secrets' (2002), when the interior and exterior were used to depict the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
Wherever you stay near Durham Cathedral, you can expect comfortable accommodation that will normally include WiFi access and other homely comforts such as tea and coffee-making facilities.
