History abounds in this ancient university city nestled amid dales, moors and sea…

Founded in 995AD by Lindisfarne Monks who chose this lofty location as the burial place of St Cuthbert, Durham is packed with historic buildings including the Norman cathedral where Cuthbert is laid to rest, and magnificent castle which doubles as a prestigious Hogwarts-esque university. Stroll along the banks of the Wear to discover the secret gardens of Crook Hall, perhaps catch a game at Emirates Durham International Cricket Ground, browse the stylish boutiques and treat yourself to a cream tea in the quaint cobbled streets, or learn a little more about the city at the Heritage Centre and Museum. There is a wealth to see and do just a short distance away too – marvel at the Romans' audacious frontier of Hadrian’s Wall, enjoy walks in the Yorkshire Dales and admire the art of Bowes Museum.

On included excursions you'll step back in time at imposing Bamburgh Castle in Northumbria, and visit the medieval manor house of Crook Hall, built around 1217, and one of the oldest inhabited buildings in Durham.
