Step back in time in this ancient city...

Spend four nights in the fascinating city of Durham on this themed-holiday especially for history enthusiasts. 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 the magnificent UNESCO-listed castle which doubles as a prestigious Hogwarts-esque university. On included excursions you’ll step back in time with a full day at the Beamish Open Air Museum, and re-live 2,000 years of history with tickets to see the annual live re-enactment show, Kynren. There is a wealth to see and do just a short distance away from the city too – marvel at the Romans' audacious frontier of Hadrian’s Wall, enjoy walks in the Yorkshire Dales and admire the art of Bowes Museum.
