Visited Durham Christmas Market yesterday. Part of this held in the Cathedral itself. Wandered around the Cathedral taking in the wonders of this magnificant building, its history and those who have worshipped within its walls and are buried here. Stunning architecture. Beautiful experience.

The cathedral is always great to wander around, but even better when they have a foodie festival in the Cloisters and on the green. Lots of people and well managed with lots of cathedral helpers - always friendly too. Carol service was packed - lovely day.

As with the number of Cathedrals i have visited, the buildings and the history behind them never seizes to amaze me. How big, the leaded windows and the smoothness of the sculptures to name but a few. The time of year with xmas fast approaching also makes it that much more special. The Cathedral is open daily until 6pm from... More

Went inside the cathedral to see the market stalls in the cloisters. Felt rather sorry for the traders in this setting as was very cramped. Cathedral beautiful

One of our most stunning ancient cathedrals. Working in Durham this week and attended Evensong. A truly deep and memorable experience. To take part in a service that has its roots in early Christianity as practiced by Saints Aiden and Cubert in a building that reaches back into our distant cultural past is a rare privilege. Beautifully sung. Just go... More

It stands proudly on the mount of the city skirted by the river below , inside is equally breathtaking, and I highly recomend any visit to the uk is not complete without a... More
