Durham is a beautiful city situated in the northeast of England, near Newcastle. The River Wear makes its way through the town, in the form of a loop, offering picturesque views and several opportunities to the city dwellers. When in Durham, you can experience the multi-faceted nature of this charming English city. You can take in nature and scenery at the Crook Hall and Gardens, enjoy a day of hiking with friends at the East Durham Coast or go for a walk at the Seaham beach.
Some of the more dramatic, historical parts of the city include the beautiful Durham Cathedral; a guided tour through the castle can be very entertaining and informative. You can also visit the Durham Castle which feels like it has dropped out of a fairytale and the Ushaw Historic House is yet another place where you can go to admire the history and architecture.
The Oriental Museum holds some fascinating artefacts and the Durham Cricket ground is an excellent place to catch a match!
