Visit Durham's Impressive Castle and Cathedral

Durham Castle, with its prominent location above the gorges of the Wear valley, is a sight to behold. This imposing Norman building, now housing students of the University of Durham, was for centuries an important lookout to protect the city from foreign invaders. Continuously inhabited since its founding, the iconic UNESCO World Heritage Site landmark, and was the home of the wealthy Prince Bishops of Durham until the 19th Century.

The cathedral, also easily accessible from several Durham hotels, welcomes hundreds of thousands of visitors each year and has an imposing 65-metre-high tower. Climb to the top for a magnificent panoramic view of the city, although if you are a Durham University student, beware that local legend states it is bad luck for undergraduates to ascend the 325 stairs before their graduation.
