“Very picturesque”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

A nice calm area situated between the cathedral and the castle. Nice at certain times of the year when people are allowed to sit on the grass. Very beautiful surroundings of the castle at one side and the cathedral at the other.

“Very Pretty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2012

Palace Green is very pretty, and the access point for both Durham Cathedral and Durham Castle. There is a cafe in the Almshouses on the Green and the University Library Shop is worth a visit for those souvenier's.

“Tranquil and picturesque”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

Best enjoyed in spring and autumn, this is a quiet sanctuary away from the city centre, with a river walk close by.

“Library”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

Visit the university library if you can. Its like no library you have seen before. Visited once or twice courtesy of being a student. You become a part of the history.
