The cathedral dominates the city and it's impressive both inside and outside - the building is steeped in history and the styles and architecture were interesting - one of the members of the clergy gave us a brief overview of the history and interesting sections of the cathedral during our visit. Good way to spend 2 - 3 hours in Durham

Dominating skyline for centuries, alone worth a trip to North England. Must see for visitors interested in political history and history of architecture.

This building is just wonderful, walking up Owengate from the Market Place gives a glimpse of the north door, and the whole building comes into view as you walk onto palace green. We went into the Open Treasure exhibition, located in the dormitory and the great kitchen, there are three parts to this visitor exhibition, the monastic story of the Cathedral, a changing exhibition and the artefacts of St Cuthbert. The price was £7.50, but only £15.00 for a year long pass, which we purchased to keep visiting the changing exhibits and the 10 minute talks. Great value.

Visited Durham Cathedral on a day visit to Durham.
There is a special bus that runs from the city square up to the Cathedral as it’s quite a steep climb.
The Cathedral is in a beautiful setting and surrounded by other lovely buildings.
Although admission is free there is a suggested donation of £3 and it’s well worth it.
There are plenty of guides if you have a question but it’s just nice to wander round at your own pace taking in the splendour of this magnificent building.
