About Durham

Durham as a town reflects the long history of its magnificent castle and cathedral with its winding streets, ancient market place and alleyways and other old churches to discover which tell us that at one time Durham was a great place of pilgrimage. On the outskirts of the city is the battleground site of the Battle of Neville's Cross, where England fought and defeated Scotland in 1346 taking the Scottish king David II prisoner. In Durham you will also find a Victorian Indoor Market, Botanical Gardens, Finchale Priory; a 13th century holiday retreat built by the monks of Durham Cathedral, and lots of interesting shops, walks and boat trips on the river Wear.
