Exceptionally beautiful green
Aug 2021 • Family
And it’s there! Right in front of the cathedral and castle and surrounded by beauty all the way round. If visiting Durham this is an obvious must do, it’s just to walk around, won’t take long. For the non climbers there is a bus. Obvious a highlight of Durham

Historic Durham

The beautiful medieval heart of the city - the green is surrounded by plenty of exceptional buildings in addition to the cathedral and the castle (closed for Covid during our visit)

WORTH SEEING
Jul 2021
Well worth seeing as you walk around the city as both the Cathedral and Castle are located close by. A series of riverbank walks are easily accessible from it. The green currently has a Covid testing station for students sited on it.

You must come here to access the Cathedral. You get great views of both the Cathedral and the castle as well as other historic buildings such as the library.

April 2018 the greening of England
Jul 2020
April 2018 I think in my other reviews of Durham I said 1918 opps! I am a senior but not that old. England in spring is so fresh as it is greening and colourful flowers and trees. A sweater will do. The palace green lived up to the name. Stop rushing stop thinking and just enjoy.

Lovely green by castle and cathedral
Oct 2020 • Couples
Well worth seeing as you walk around the city as both Cathedral and Castle are located by this. There are riverbank walks accessible from it. Lots of old university buildings surround the green.

Don’t go
Sep 2020
It’s just grass. Don’t go and if you do you will be wasting valuable time. It’s next To Durham cathedral. I can review it because i have seen it when I went to the cathedral.

Gorgeous Setting
Feb 2020
It’s a step back in time in a well kept area of the city. It had been snowing the day before but today it was cold but bright and got some lovely photographs. Read about the history very interesting.
