Located in the heart of the oldest part of Durham at it's highest point lies Durham cathedral. The Norman cathedral was built in 1093 and is designated as a UNESCO World heritage site.
Unfortunately for us we visited late morning on a Sunday so as there were services taking place we quite rightly had limited access. There was no entrance fee but you were invited to make a £3 donation.
Visit the cloisters and outer sections of the cathedral which are stunning. We will definatly visit again.
