Soak in the atmosphere of Durham’s famous medieval city, including its cathedral, ancient treasures, and familiar locations from blockbuster movies.
Sitting under the fantastic Cathedral of St Cuthbert of Durham and the imposing Castle, Durham is one of the most famous cities in the North of England. This walking tour of Durham gives you an in-depth introduction to a city that has grown around the shrine of its Anglo-Saxon saint, St. Cuthbert. The Bishops of Durham were both church and military leaders defending the North of England from the Scottish threat.
We will take you through the Grand Romanesque Cathedral of Durham – often described to be the greatest Cathedral in England – explaining the architecture and history of the building before showing you the Open Treasures where the treasures of the Bishop of Durham have been gathered and curated.
