About the neighbourhood
There is a general dealers with off licence within 2 minutes of your front door and a leisure club with gym and indoor swimming pool just over the road.

The Cathedral, Castle and University are a 10-minute walk away and the lovely boutique shops, restaurants and bars are within 5- minutes from the apartment. The apartment benefits from a beautiful riverside setting, however please be aware that we are located within the city centre and close to the Cathedral, therefore subject to some external noise from the Cathedral bells, restaurants, bars and emergency vehicles. * Durham gala day may reduce access to and from via a vehicle as the police close certain ro...
