The Essential
Highly recommended
The castle and quiet streets of this little medieval city are the perfect foil for its Norman cathedral, an imposing sandstone hulk rising above the deep wooded gorge of the River Wear. This sublime fusion of architecture and landscape is sited in a truly remarkable setting. Durham's intellectual reputation was confirmed with the foundation in 1832 of its university, which is England's oldest after Cambridge and Oxford. It is also the county town and a major administrative and commercial centre.
