Durham in North East England
The city itself rests on the River Wear, to the south-west of Sunderland, south of Newcastle upon Tyne and to the north of Darlington. The River Wear circulations north through the city, making an incised meander which encloses the centre on 3 sides to form Durham’s peninsula. Durham is an uneven city, claiming to be built on the symbolic 7 hilltops. Upon the most central and prominent position high above the Wear, the cathedral dominates the sky line. Much of the central city areas are now occupied by students living in joint homes.
The most sought-after locations found at this incredible city corner:
- Durham Cathedral
- Auckland Castle
- Beamish Museum
- Durham University Botanic Garden
- High Force Waterfall
In addition: lots of other affairs in the area – go see those little rooms with awesome paintings and sculptures from a variety of young british artists from a local artists touching on various neo-expressionism schools and on to performance art, with at least one exclusive gallery on the menu.
