Durham: North England Gem

Former capital of North-East England, Durham is a small, but historically rich town, whose university can rival with Oxford and Cambridge. Apart from this, it’s a charming place for a day-trip. Let’s see what Durham can offer to its visitors.

Beautiful and lively city centre.

Hardly believable that this small town used to be a capital, isn’t it?

Impressive Durham Cathedral

A pearl of Durham – this gorgeous cathedral that took only 40 years to be built. Inside it’s absolutely splendid, but there is another thing which is worth of your attention – Durham Cathedral built from Lego bricks! The accuracy is spectacular!

Such a green promenade!

This green alley is a dream of every jogger or dog-walker – look how peaceful it is and how beautiful! By the way, from here you can take quite a nice picture of the Cathedral.

Cafés, bars, fish & chips.

Durham is full of cute tearooms, cafés and pubs. Dear old England! Don’t pass by Bill’s – they have excellent desserts!
