“Durham Town Hall”
Reviewed 1 June 2013

My brother and I visit Durham every week when I am in the UK. today was no exception. When we went into the market place we encountered a number of people dressed up in what looked like uni garb BUT they were guides to the Town Hall , right next door to the pub the Market Tavern.If you never been..go. The rooms are steeped in history + 500 years and I give this one of the best tourist sights in Durham.An absolute treasure.

“Ideal on a Sunny Day”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

On a Bank Holiday you find most shops in city centres are closed not the case in Durham there is a wealth of shops from small independents to chain stores. You have a selection of varied restaurants and coffee shops to make it a nice place to visit ; especially on a Sunny Day.
Small Tip : look out for the charity parking areas as it can be a nightmare getting parked in Durham.

“Beautiful Durham as good, if not better than York!”
Reviewed 30 April 2013

If you are looking for charm and lovely walks Durham is the place for you. The Cathedral and Castle are beautiful buildings and the cobbled narrow street leading up to the Cathedral is worth seeing too A walk along the river, or taking out a boat is essential. You can park and ride very cheaply. I prefer York for shopping but Durham for its walks and Cathedral!
