Top 5 Things to See: 48Hrs in Durham

A weekend break is the perfect length of time to experience everything Durham has to offer. Despite its city status, Durham is relatively small in size, and everywhere can be reached easily on foot. Check out what not to miss during a city break in Durham.

  1. Durham Cathedral

    Durham Cathedral is a spectacular architectural gem situated in the centre of the city, and has been officially recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The cathedral is home to the Shrine of St Cuthbert, one of the most important saints in Northern England.

  2. Durham Castle

    Now part of Durham University, Durham Castle is an ancient Norman castle which dates back to the 11th century. Guided tours of the castle are available every day, and a castle museum showcases its extensive art collections.

  3. High Force Waterfall

    High Force Waterfall is a stunning waterfall just outside of Durham, surrounded by pleasant woodlands and walking trails. The whole of the River Tees drops over a precipice of 21m, into a plunge pool below.

  4. Hardwick Park

    Hardwick Park is a charming country park situated outside of the city centre, a great place for picnics, bike riding, or just a pleasant stroll. Admission is free, and an onsite Visitor Centre offers visitors an interesting history of the park.

  5. Seaham Beach

    If you're looking for a traditional English day at the seaside, Seaham Beach is a long pleasant sandy beach. Check out the family-friendly promenade behind the beach, too.
