Explore Medieval Durham

Durham is renowned for its well-preserved Norman castle and cathedral, which comprise a UNESCO World Heritage Site and offer wonderful views of the city and the Wear valley. The cathedral is one of the finest examples of Norman architecture in Britain, and the castle was for many centuries a powerful stronghold of the Prince-Bishops of Durham, who played an important role in defending northern England from foreign invaders.

From luxury hotels to affordable accommodation, Durham has a good range of hotels catering to different budgets.
