Explore historic Durham from the comfort of our hotel

Bursting with historical attractions and modern delights, Durham welcomes visitors with open arms. It's a hilly city but you'll soon forget tired legs as you become immersed in Durham's cobbled streets while soaking up the lively atmosphere, enjoying the street music, and popping into boutique shops, cafes, and market places. Today the city is famed for its beauty and historic buildings – there are more than 600 listed buildings and the view up the hill of the UNESCO World Heritage cathedral and 11th century Norman castle from the River Wear is wonderful.
