Curious About Durham
Have fun discovering Durham with two self-guided, heritage walks with an optional treasure hunt.
Durham is one of the most dramatic cultural and historic destinations in the UK. At its centre is a stunning cathedral which sits atop a prominent peninsula overlooking the wooded slopes of the meandering River Wear. Beside it is a captivating Norman Castle, used by the university, but open for tours. From here walk into the centre via winding cobbled streets, to browse some of the unusual shops, or its colourful marketplace. This old English university city has a wonderful timeless quality about it, ripe for exploration and yet plenty of time and opportunity to relax.
