What's it like to live in Durham?

In 2019, National Geographic ranked Durham as one of Britain's eight most beautiful cities. Moreover, the writer/broadcaster Bill Bryson described it as a 'perfect little city'.

So what makes Durham so special?

This historic city in the North East of England dates back to the 11th century when it was founded as a Norman castle. Continually occupied for the last 950 years, the castle is now home to the students of  Durham University.

Another major tourist attraction is the awe-inspiring 12th century Durham Cathedral. Built in the magnificent Norman style, the ancient building contains the shrines of not one but two Saints - Bede and Cuthbert.

Both the cathedral and the castle were placed on the World Heritage List by UNESCO in 1986.

Home to around 43,000 people, the city of Durham is compact and easy to navigate. It may be smaller than nearby Newcastle (ten minutes away by train), but it has so much to offer.

The walkability of the city means that you are never far from a bar, restaurant or pub. And when the sun goes down, Durham really comes alive. Explore the picturesque streets after dark to discover a diverse range of clubs, night markets and live music.

When you need a break from the urban buzz, relax in one of the many green spaces. It's overflowing with gorgeous flower gardens, impressive parks and trails to help you unwind and reconnect with nature.

So whatever your taste, Durham has something to offer.
