Durham is a beautiful, historic city in the North East of England.
The monthly Farmers' Market is a welcome addition to Durhams events calendar. Here you will find fresh local specialities. In the Spring and Summer, stunning floral displays adorn the City.
The City lies on the banks of the River Wear, which are favourite areas for walks. If you don't fancy walking you could hire a rowing boat on the river or take the 'Prince Bishop' river cruiser for a gentle trip along the river. Durham Regatta is another busy local event when teams of rowers race along the river.
Many popular places are easily reached from Durham, making it an ideal touring base. The largest open-air museum in England is to be found at Beamish where you can see life as it was at the beginning of the last century.
Now home to the students of University College, Durham Castle is a registered museum as well as a vibrant living and working community. Further afield, fine art treasures can be seen at the Bowes Museum, a French-style chateau in Barnard Castle.
If you're into sport, the Durham County Cricket Club is a great day out, especially now it has become an official England cricket team venue.
Famous for its nightlife, Newcastle is a vibrant visitor destination.
The northern-most county of England with lots of beauties to behold.
