The best thing is the policy not to charge an entrance fee. Then the helpful volunteeers who manage the visitors. Lots of Harry Potter fans visit and the joy and excitement on their faces as they enter the cloister is a sight to remember

Wonderful cathedral - so much history and so many breath taking features. We had a look round and then came back for the guided tour which was brilliant and found out so much more. They are raising money to open up more areas by making a lego model of the cathedral which was great to see. A must see in... More

Durahm Cathedral is a must to do on your holiday. The atmosphere is undescribable. The peace, the feeling of history, and the beatiful things to see. Do not miss a visit.

This is a very beautiful building packed full of history & information it is set in stunning grounds and is easily accessible. There is a lovely restaurant situated inside which is quite reasonable prices, the cathedral is free to get into & for a small charge you can climb the 365 steps to the tower (if you are feeling fit)...

It is an amazing building, you cannot describe how beautiful it is, seeing is believing ! The Christmas choir service is one of the best I have been to (even though I am not really religious). I also purchased a lego brick in the cathedral which is situated near the shop which is also a great place to go.

A wonderful cathedral with the most fantastic stained glass, and housing the shrine of St. Cuthbert. The whole building had a most spiritual feel and still attracts Pilgrims. A beautiful and atmospheric place in a World Heritage Site.
