What a peaceful place. Oozing with history and charm. Charging is optional and very reasonable. Could charge more. Lovely cakes and coffee in the cafe. Not to be missed.

What a fantastic Cathedral. The architure is stunning and it is well worth a visit. It is such a peaceful place to visit. There are covid restrictions in place and if you visit during a service (for respect) you are unable to take to many photos.

I went to the Cathedral during a visit to Durham, entry is free. There is some impressive stained glass and architecture, there is also a lego model of the Cathedral. There is a fairly steep climb from the town, but a bus 40 is available. Recommended.
