Pocket Guide: Durham Durham University Hotels

Durham University is one of the United Kingdom's leading universities, highly ranked in national and international league tables. It is within walking distance of a good range of hotels and inns in Durham, and only a short car journey from many more elsewhere in the city and the rest of County Durham.

About the University

Durham University received official university status in 1832, which makes it England's third oldest university. Like Oxford and Cambridge, it has a special collegiate system with numerous constituent colleges, the oldest of which is based at the castle. Over the years, the university has produced many notable alumni, from successful cricketer Andrew Strauss to Eden Project founder Tim Smit.

Durham's Castle and Cathedral

No visit to this city would be complete without witnessing the architectural splendour of its cathedral and castle, which form a UNESCO World Heritage Site and are more than 900 years old. Book a guided tour of the castle interior which now houses students of the university, then explore the spectacular cathedral and see its rare stone-vaulted ceiling.

At many hotel lobbies, you will be able to pick up restaurant business cards and leaflets offering information on upcoming events at the castle, cathedral and other attractions in Durham.

Relax at the Durham University Botanic Garden

This delightful attraction includes various themed gardens decorated with diverse plant life and beautiful glass houses. Each season, they transform into different shades of colour, from the bright flowers of summer to the deep oranges and reds of autumn, and the glass houses also contain numerous exotic plants such as cacti.

Visit the Durham University Oriental Museum

Offering a superb collection of Chinese and Ancient Egyptian artefacts, the Durham University Oriental Museum is a leading archaeological attraction organises several special exhibitions throughout the year. In fact, it is the only museum of its kind in northern England, forming part of the university's extensive Heritage Collections.

Durham Hotels with In-Room WiFi Access
