Review of Palace Green

Ranked #8 of 59 things to do in Durham
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Such a pretty part of Durham City. Very secluded with an amazing tea room. To me, everyone who visits Durham should walk up to Palace Green just to be "part of history". Well recommended.

Thank June B

Durham is my home City and I often visit Palace Green just to wander about and soak up the atmosphere. If you visit our beautiful city that is Durham please take 5 minutes and have a wander up there, you wont be disappointed I promise.

Stunning, as not only a local, but as a sight-seer, such a treat to be near the iconic and stunning architecture

What an excellent place to soak in centuries (almost millenia) of history, just sit at end end of the green and soak in the views

An oasis of calm in a busy city. An excellent place to chill out and spend an hour or so walking around on the way to the Cathedral or Castle. Apart from that, it’s basically just a lawn
