A very interesting place and worth a visit. The views from the top of the tower are the best. Make sure you go on a nice day.

This beautiful Cathedral is so pleasing on the eye....you don't have to like churches to appreciate it. There are often events held in and around. Definitely work a look - and its free!

An amazing space, with more history than almost any spot in the UK. One of the places on earth you must vist if you are into history and especially English History. The man who created the study of English History is buried there ( the Venerable Bede )

Durham Palace Green outside the cathedral is transformed into a marquee with Xmas vendors event but if you're lucky and wander across to Cloisters and into the cathedral you can catch choir rehearsal- it's etherial and sends tingles down your spine with the acoustics reverberating around the building
