Pocket Guide: Durham Durham Heritage Centre and Museum Hotels

Learn about this city's remarkable medieval heritage and the growth of its internationally acclaimed university by visiting the Durham Heritage Centre and Museum. It is well within reach of Durham's hotels and bed and breakfast venues, and is adjacent to the city's magnificent castle and cathedral.

About the Durham Heritage Centre and Museum

In a beautiful Grade I-Listed building, the museum the Durham Museum and Heritage Centre tells the story of Durham's development from a medieval settlement into a lively, cosmopolitan university city. Learn about the Durham's historic industries and find out what life would have been like for families centuries ago. See a reconstructed 19th-century prison cell, and visit the sculpture garden which exhibits the works of the acclaimed County Durham-born sculptor Fenwick Lawson.

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.
