Student at the University of Durham? Then this is for you.
If you’re looking for the quintessential historic university city, you’ve found it.
Timeless – that’s the word. Winding, cobbled streets lead to a beautiful peninsula crowned with the dramatic Cathedral Castle, built almost a thousand years ago. And to some of the most stunning panoramas in Europe.
There’s plenty for students to do here. Row or cruise along the River Wear. Explore the Botanic Garden and discover a tropical rainforest (...in the north of England!). Visit Crook Hall, a Medieval manor house and banqueting hall surrounded by beautiful cottage gardens. Go rock climbing.
Phew. Ready for a break? Then head to one of the dozens of lovely cafes, bars or pubs. Where you can raise a toast with friends – to one of the UK’s most cultural places to stay.
