Durham Cathedral was built in the late 11th and early 12th centuries to house the relics of St Cuthbert and the Venerable Bede. Beside it stands the castle: a solid Norman fortress. You get a wonderful view of both when heading north on the train on the East Coast mainline.

I’ve only visited once, a whistle stop walk to see the cathedral during the lunch break of a training course. Must go back and see it properly!
